INFANTS' HOSPITAL 




Forty*Eighth Annual Report 



January 1, 1930 to December 31, 1930 



'67 Milk Street 
Boston 



Dear Contributor: 

Herein is the account of another year's 
work of the INFANTS' HOSPITAL. 

I am anxious to have you read it and become 
more familiar with the work we are trying to do at 
the Hospital in the saving of infant life. The 
sorry part of it is that so many come to our doors 
for help who are unable to pay even a part of the 
cost of service — 

BUT NONE ARE TURNED AWAY ON THAT ACCOUNT 

That's where your contribution comes in. It 
fills the breach for those who cannot pay. 

If you have not given for this year, I hope 
you may be able to do it soon, as the HOSPITAL IS 
GREATLY IN NEED of many more subscriptions. 

Very truly yours,

Infants' Hospital — Annual Report 



REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 
FOR THE YEAR 1930 



The enlarged space resulting from the rearrangement of rooms, 
together with the addition of new quarters, already have made it 
possible better to meet the expanding scope of the work of the Infants' 
Hospital. The utility rooms have been rearranged and ease consider- 
ably the duties of the nurses. Many mothers have enjoyed the restful 
accommodations of the Rest Room, and in their new quarters, the 
Secretary and Social Service Worker perform their duties more com- 
fortably. 

The Milk Room, with its new equipment, now makes it possible 
to keep pace with modern times and continue the high standards set 
up by the pioneer in this field — the late Dr. Thomas Rotch. 

The new Teaching Room has had a direct influence in lessening the 
dangers from infection and also in making for the quiet so important to 
sick babies. Likewise, the new Treatment Room has materially im- 
proved the facilities with which the doctors and nurses perform the 
necessary therapeutic procedures. 

Attention should be focused to the main principles upon which 
effective hospital care for sick babies is based. In order to cure disease 
it is necessary to understand the cause of disease. Then knowing its 
cause, be familiar with the methods of treatment which most promptly 
check or remove the cause. In other words, the first step is diagnosis 
and the second step is treatment. 

But more than this is essential, especially in a hospital for infants. 
Little babies cannot tell that they are hungry, or miserable, wet or 
cold, so equally important as correct diagnosis and proper treatment, 
is understanding and intelligent nursing. This must be available at night 
as well as in the daytime. 

The Infants' Hospital has a well-organized nursing staff so far as 
understanding of the babies' needs is concerned — also it is adequate 
in numbers if the sole responsibilities were in the care of the babies. 
However, young women have to be trained. Besides, there are count- 
less little things which impose a heavy burden on the time of the 
graduate nurses. The recording of the daily chart is one of these. 
Every one of the fifty babies has a hospital record and on it must be 
transcribed accurately every little detail of his or her behaviour during 
the twenty-four hours. 

A desirable forward step would be to have a daily record clerk, 
thereby releasing the graduate head nurses so that increased time 
could be devoted to the sick babies who require individual nursing 
supervision. We must aim toward Better Diagnosis; Better Treatment; 
Better Nursing Care. 

Eight hundred and ninety-five (895) babies were cared for this 
year in contrast to eight hundred and sixty-seven (867) in 1929. The 
average daily stay was reduced from nineteen to eighteen days. The 



Infants' Hospital — Annual Report 



total admission of infants represents pract'cally the number which 
can be adequately treated without increasing the medical and nursing 
personnel. 

It is a satisfaction to see the air conditioning system for pre- 
matures, which was installed three years ago, being adopted by other 
hospitals. This past year the equipment modeled after the Infants' 
Hospital has been placed in the Boston Lying-in Hospital and the 
New Haven Hospital. Plans are being laid for following this system 
in the new Cornell Medical Center in New York, and in Cleveland, 
and in London, England. 

During the past few years there have been about thirty-five babies 
admitted with convulsions due to lead poisoning. The source in the 
majority of instances is from lead in paint chewed from cribs and toys. 
This situation has been taken up with the United States Public Health 
Service and it is to be hoped that steps may be taken to prevent paint- 
ing cribs with lead paint, and so limit, by prevention, the frequency of 
this distressing condition. 

Studies conducted in the Clarence John Blake Research Room in 
which the air-conditioning system was installed, through the interest 
of the Ladies' Aid Society, have resulted in useful information regard- 
ing the peculiarities of respiration in premature infants. Interesting 
and important observations in respect to the diagnosis and treatment of 
anemia have been concluded successfully. 

Instruction to undergraduate and graduate medical students and 
nurses has been continued as in the past. 

The accomplishments of the past year are directly due to the sup- 
port given by the Board of Managers and the Ladies' Aid Society 
and acknowledgment should be made to the Superintendent, the 
attending staff, resident staff, nurses, and the hospital personnel for 
their able and conscientious assistance in the work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth D. Blackfan.

Infants' Hospital — Annual Report 11 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT 



The year 1930 has seen the completion of construction which has 
infinitely improved our facilities for the care of patients and the study 
of disease. Early in the year plans were carefully worked out which 
included the complete remodelling of the Milk Sterilizing Room, a 
new Class Room, a Rest Room, adequate, well-lighted and ventilated 
quarters for the Social Service and Stenographic Staff. 

The Milk Sterilizing Room is ideal with its new monel metal bottle- 
washing sink, equipped with drain boards, bottle washers and rinsers. 
The method of pasteurizing the milk has also been changed and a new 
combined bottle sterilizer and pasteurizer added to our equipment. 
The Class Room is ideal in its location, and the Mothers' Rest Room 
is a delight to many nursing mothers, living in some instances an 
hour's distance from the hospital. A Cloak Room to the left and an 
adjoining History Room are constantly in use and fill a long-felt need. 
The new Treatment Room, which is twice the size of the former room, 
enables two doctors to do treatments or dressings at one time. In 
moving the old sterilizing apparatus, numerous repairs were found 
necessary, and it was decided to put the whole system in first-class 
condition. 

During the alterations it was necessary to curtail the admissions 
to some extent, and, at times, the routine work was accomplished 
under stress. Eight hundred and ninety-five patients were admitted 
compared with 867 during the year 1929, and the daily average treated 
was 46 as compared with 45 in 1929. The daily average is kept as 
near 50 as possible, but it is frequently necessary to admit up to 55, 
which is the capacity that can be cared for with the available nursing 
staff. 

The oxygen tents are used with increased frequency and gratifying 
results. The smaller tents, made especially for use with infants, are 
more convenient and consume less oxygen. The use of the respirator 
for premature babies, infantile cases, and occasional acute respiratory 
failure from various causes has also contributed much to the successful 
treatment of these cases. 

The mercury vapor lamps were moved from the lower ward to the 
Solarium where it is more convenient to treat increased numbers of 
babies. On the recommendation of the architects, an exhaust fan was 
installed on the roof, and the cost of the above changes was taken 
care of out of the Special Light Fund available for research in light 
treatment. With the coming of winter cello glass is substituted for 
screening in the Solarium which enables children with rickets and 
poorly nourished infants to bask daily in the sunlight.

in the staff which is as follows: 

1 Graduate Day Supervisor 

1 Graduate Assistant Day Supervisor 

2 Head Nurses (night) 

2 Graduate Head Nurses (one on each floor) 
1 Graduate in charge of Food Laboratory 

1 Graduate in charge of Treatment Room 
23 Student Nurses 

6 Attendants 

2 Porters 

1 Recorder 

1 Half-time Recorder 

1 Social Service Worker 

1 Social Service Stenographer 

As in previous years, the Needleworkers Guild of America, and the 
Needlewomen's Friend Society have contributed substantially to the 
linen requirements of the hospital. 

To the Ladies' Aid we are most grateful for anticipating and pro- 
viding every possible requirement. The student nurses are most appre- 
ciative of the teas so generously provided by them, also numerous 
concert and theatre tickets. Other kind friends of the hospital con- 
tributed office furniture and equipment for the various new rooms. 

To the Officers and Directors of the Hospital, to the Staff, Nurses 
and Employees, the Superintendent wishes to express her gratitude 
for their unfailing co-operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ida C. Smith, 
Superintendent.

LADIES' AID COMMITTEE OF THE INFANTS' HOSPITAL 
ANNUAL REPORT, 1930 



The Ladies' Aid Committee has met regularly during the year. The 
meetings are always well attended and the interest of the members and 
their co-operation is of the greatest help in our various activities. 

The special interest this year has been in the addition to the hospital 
which was completed during the summer months. This addition has 
provided a new Milk Room with modern equipment for handling the 
milk and for washing and sterilizing the bottles, a Rest Room for 
mothers who come to nurse their babies and who heretofore have been 
obliged to wait in the halls, a new Class Room for students, a small 
but completely equipped Treatment Room, and also adequate quarters 
for the Recorders. 

For raising funds this year the Committee has sponsored a series of 
theatre performances in Boston, given by the Professional Players. 
From this we hope to realize between $3,000 and $4,000. 

The Committee has paid for two beds in the Hospital during the 
past year and it is hoped to make this an annual feature. 

The linen requisitions for the Hospital were, as usual, filled by the 
Needlewomen's Friend Society, and we are most grateful for their 
assistance. 

The Nurses' teas were started in November and are proving even 
more popular than ever, owing possibly to the fact that they are now 
held in the large reception room of Gardner House, which makes them 
more attractive in every way. 

We have several new members, and few resignations, so that the 
Committee enters upon the new year with high hopes for what it may 
do to help in the great work of the Infants' Hospital. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Katherine Ladd, 

Secretary.

18 Infants' Hospital — Annual Report 



REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE 
Committee for 1930 

Mrs. John Homans, Jr., Chairman 

Mrs. Wallace Goodrich 

Mrs. Stephen Sleeper 

The year of 1930 closes with a report from the Social Worker of 
1103 visits made to homes and agencies, and 168 cases opened. As usual, 
the large proportion of visits were instructive only, but nearly 50 cases 
were referred to a child-placing agency, or to a relief-giving agency 
to give or to supplement aid. A number of babies have been placed in 
foster homes, either permanently or for convalescent care, because their 
homes were too poor to give adequate food or warmth for a delicate 
baby. Four babies with chronic illnesses were sent to the State Infirmary 
or to Long Island Hospital. 

There have been a number of babies admitted with scurvy because 
the families have been too poor to buy oranges which have been too 
expensive to buy. 

It has been a great help to be able to send a few babies to the Con- 
valescent Home in Wellesley, the past summer. The worker hopes 
that the experiment has been so satisfactory that the ward will be 
open again next summer. 

A new room for a social service office was included in the altera- 
tions of the Hospital and the workers there are greatly appreciating it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alice Homans (M.B.S.), 

Chairman Social Service Committee.

ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 
FOR THE YEAR 1931 

Although the financial resources only permit the maintenance of 
a daily quota of fifty beds, the average of forty-six sick babies daily, 
in the year 193 1, indicates better than anything else how actively the 
Infants' Hospital is meeting its responsibility to the community which 
it serves. This represents the high average of slightly over ninety per 
cent of the total bed occupancy. It is of interest to call attention to 
the A.M. A. Survey (1930) which gives the percentage of occupancy 
for general hospitals as sixty-four and seven- tenths per cent; for chil- 
dren's hospitals it gives sixty-seven per cent of bed capacity. 

Were it possible to secure increased financial resources to meet 
the emergency placed on the Hospital for admissions during times of 
stress, a greater service might be extended to the community. No 
babies who need immediate treatment are ever turned away, but 
scarcely a day passes during the periods of the year in which the inci- 
dence of disease is at its height, when we are able to admit the many 
babies who actually need hospital care, because our daily quota has 
been filled. 

The mortality figures for this year reveal the distressing fact that 
over fifty per cent of the babies who died, did so within the first 
forty-eight hours after entrance. Attention has been called to this 
before, but it needs to be emphasized over and over again. Early 
diagnosis of those diseases for which there is a specific form of treat- 
ment and the extension of proven preventive measures are the known 
way by which this excessive hospital mortality can be affected. The 
Hospital assists in the dissemination of knowledge which should reduce 
the mortality rate through the teaching of medical students and nurses 
and the training given to the internes who are going out to minister to 
sick and well babies alike. 

Active progress in investigation can be reported. Further informa- 
tion has been secured relating to a form of Chronic Intestinal Indiges- 
tion (Coeliac Disease), which, it is not too much to hope, will add to 
our knowledge of the fundamental cause of this disturbance. An 
unusual type of anemia in young infants with a satisfactory method 
of its treatment have been discovered by the group directing their 
attention to Infantile Blood Diseases. A disease seen much more fre- 
quently under two years of age than in older life is Influenza Menin- 
gitis. No curative treatment has been found. Yet progress toward a 
better understanding of Influenza Meningitis has been made, and a 
serum for treatment has been prepared by one of the staff physicians 
working in the Bacteriological Laboratory and a member of the 
Bacteriological Staff at the Harvard Medical School. Whereas two 
patients treated with the serum have recovered, final judgment 
regarding its efficacy must be withheld, for the present. 

A modification of the pneumonia tent has been devised and 
already has proven equally as satisfactory in giving oxygen to pre- 
mature babies and infants as the method devised for adults. It has 
the added value of permitting visibility of the little patient and thus 
facilitates the nursing care. 

Mention should be made here of the new Isolation Unit of the 



INFANTS' HOSPITAL 



Children's Hospital, which was opened for the reception of patients in 
August. This unit will prove of real service to the Infants' Hospital, 
by accepting patients who develop contagious diseases, and in the 
event of an epidemic, the time a ward needs to be kept in quarantine 
will be lessened materially. It is worthy of note that arrangements 
have been made so that the patients in this unit may be treated by 
their private physicians. 

In 1923, a discharge clinic was established which continues to 
function actively, and through the untiring interest of the Social 
Service worker, each baby is returned for observation before being 
released finally. This clinic serves two purposes. It gives assurance 
that the infant is progressing satisfactorily, and it makes possible the 
discharge of patients at an earlier period than might otherwise be the 
case. The following case serves to illustrate the latter purpose. 

A baby, critically ill, was brought to the Hospital at the age of 
six days. He weighed three pounds and four ounces. The disease 
responded well to the indicated treatment and he gained weight up 
to a certain point. Then, however, despite all efforts, the baby did 
not gain. After he reached five pounds, and the Social Service worker 
had determined that the home care was fairly satisfactory, he was 
discharged. When seen at the Discharge Clinic four days later he had 
gained six ounces. Three months later he weighed nine pounds. 

Appreciation of the assistance so generously given by the Ladies' 
Aid Society and the Board of Directors should be expressed, and 
acknowledgment should be made to the Superintendent, the attending 
staff, resident staff, nurses, and the hospital personnel for their con- 
tinued interest and support. 



Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth D. Blackfan.

ANNUAL REPORT 13 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT 

The unusual conditions prevalent during the year 1931 which 
have been felt in almost every walk of life have had their effect on the 
activities of the Hospital. For some unexplainable reason the admis- 
sions decreased from 895 to 829, and automatically the receipts of the 
Hospital show a decrease. This latter item is almost uncontrollable 
during a period of strained economic times, when existing conditions 
of unemployment have made it practically impossible for parents to 
meet hospital obligations. Comparison with other hospitals shows that 
we are no exception in our decreased income, and early in the year a 
policy of the severest economy was adopted. In order to increase the 
revenue for 1932 the weekly rate to be charged patients has been 
increased from $17.50 to $24.50. In doing this it is understood that 
the smallest proportion will be able to pay this amount, but the latter 
rate is more approximate to the cost per week of caring for each and 
every patient, and in cases where the family can afford to pay this 
amount it will reduce the loss on other patients. 

Our daily average number of patients treated was approximately 
the same as last year, and the number of deaths was lower. During 
the first part of the year several cases of Infantile Paralysis were treated 
in the basement respirators, but after the opening of The Children's 
Hospital Isolation Unit, all cases were admitted to the latter depart- 
ment. Great progress has been made in the development of experi- 
mental incubators, and oxygen therapy is becoming more generally 
used for diseases of respiratory failure with the addition of apparatus 
specifically designed for use with infants. With continued use of this 
scientific apparatus it is becoming more simplified in construction and 
safer to operate. The working staff with the usual changes that take 
place during the year is the same as last year and is as follows: 

1 Graduate Day Supervisor 

1 Graduate Assistant Day Supervisor 

2 Head Nurses (night) 

2 Graduate Head Nurses (one on each floor) 
1 Graduate in charge of Food Laboratory 

1 Graduate in charge of Treatment Room 
23 Student Nurses 

5 Attendants 

2 Porters 

1 Recorder 

1 Assistant Recorder 

1 Social Service Worker 

1 Social Service Stenographer 

The part-time recorder added to the staff last year is now working 
full time and has taken a great burden of clerical work from the gradu- 
ate nurses. This makes it possible for the nurses to give more time to 
actual nursing care of the infants. 

Granville Wilson, who has served the Infants' Hospital as porter 
for thirty-five years, resigned during the past year because of ill health 
and has gone to Bermuda, where he plans to make his home. 

The following suitable memorial tablets were erected in the 
newly created quarters:

"The Helen Rotch Memorial Study" 

(Record Room Study) 

" Thomas Morgan Rotch, Jr. Memorial Lecture Room" 

(Lecture Room) 

"The Helen Morgan Rotch Memorial" 

(Mothers' Rest Room) 

The comfort which the Mothers' Rest Room has proven to the parents 
of our little patients has been a source of keen pride to all connected 
with the Hospital. It is constantly in use and one hears appreciation 
expressed by all who have occasion to use it. 

In providing requests for new equipment and minor alterations 
our policy was to curtail to the lowest possible point consistent with 
the adequate care of the patients. Before any purchases were made 
the question of the need was presented to the Ladies' Aid Committee 
for discussion and approval. An electric machine for reaction testing 
known as a " Galvanamode " was purchased and it has proven very 
valuable in the early diagnosis of Tetany in infants. The laundry ele- 
vator required extensive repairs and also the installation of a new 
sliding door. The expense involved was considerable, but frequent 
mishaps in sending laundry and other supplies made it imperative to 
have this work done. The request for a new gas stove for the kitchen 
to replace a stove no longer usable was most generously granted by 
Mrs. Francis B. Crowninshield, who paid for same. A new table for 
the treatment room was requested and provided by the Ladies' Aid 
Committee. Numerous repairs were necessary to keep the air condi- 
tioning system for the premature room functioning properly, and dur- 
ing the summer months the premature room apparatus was thoroughly 
overhauled. The ward furniture was repainted, and suction accommo- 
dations were installed to fourteen new stations throughout the Wards, 
Our experience has been that the suctioning of a child's throat without 
delay has in many instances meant the saving of a child's life. All 
mattresses which have been in use since 1923 have been completely 
sterilized and remade. The doctors' laboratory had a complete over- 
hauling. New benches were provided with extra sockets and wall 
lights, which enabled doctors and students to do microscopic work 
under less difficulty. At the request of the doctors the cubicles were 
removed from the outer Premature Room. The space was so small 
that the nurses and doctors were hampered in their treatment of the 
infants. 

This report would not be complete without acknowledging with 
sincere thanks the generous contributions of clothing received from 
the Needleworkers' Guild of America and also the Needlewomen's 
Friend Society, who, as in former years, have made up our complete 
list of linen requirements. It is also a pleasure to record with thanks 
the miscellaneous gifts of theatre tickets, clothing, toys and furniture. 
The student nurses are most appreciative of the afternoon teas, so 
generously provided by the Ladies' Aid Association. The full measure 
of cooperation extended by the Directors of the Hospital and the 
Ladies' Aid Association is hereby acknowledged and thanks renewed 
in behalf of the Hospital personnel. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ida C. Smith, Superintendent.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL - - LADIES' AID COMMITTEE 

ANNUAL REPORT 

The Ladies' Aid Committee has met regularly during the year. 
There is a great deal of interest shown by all the members and the 
meetings are very well attended. 

This year the Committee again has paid for two beds in the 
Hospital during the past year and it is earnestly hoped that this can 
be done annually. 

We have given an examining table to the Hospital, and also we 
have supplied pictures and easy chairs for the rest room which was 
new last year. We sent $3,000 to Mr. Stockton for the building fund. 
Mrs. Crowninshield, one of our members, very kindly gave a gas stove 
that was badly needed. 

The Committee has sponsored for the second year the series of 
theatre performances in Boston given by the Professional Players. 
In this way we hope to raise a substantial sum. 

The linen requisitions for the Hospital were smaller this year 
and were, as usual, filled by the Needlewomen's Friend Society. We 
are most appreciative of their assistance. 

Once a month the nurses' teas are held and they are extremely 
popular and well attended. The nurses are very enthusiastic about 
them. 

We have quite a few new members and practically no resignations. 
Everyone hopes to help the Hospital in all ways possible during the 
year 1932. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Edith Prescott Wolcott, 

Secretary.

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE 

Committee for 193 i 

Mrs. John Homans, Jr., Chairman 
Mrs. Wallace Goodrich 
Mrs. Stephen Sleeper 

She opened 169 cases and made 1,192 visits to homes, agencies, 
and other hospital workers. There have been forty babies who have 
been transferred to the care of the following agencies: The Department 
of Child Guardianship, The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to 
Children, The State Infirmary, Children's Aid Association, Little 
Wanderers' Home, and clinics for long-time treatment. 

Through the year, the Children's Convalescent Home has taken 
babies who have needed a longer period of care before going back to 
homes where economic conditions do not warrant immediate and 
complete recovery at home. 

One great difficulty that the worker has had for a number of 
years — that of the lack of hospital facilities for tubercular babies — 
was ended when the State of Massachusetts opened a ward in North 
Reading for babies and children. Six babies were sent there this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alice Homans (M.B.S.) 
Chairman Social Service Committee.

REPORT OF THE NURSING SERVICE 

1931 

Inasmuch as this is the first year that the report of the nursing 
service has been printed separately, we are giving a general picture 
rather than the details of the year's work. The nursing service of the 
Infants' Hospital is furnished by a staff of graduate nurses and students 
from the Children's Hospital School of Nursing and its affiliating stu- 
dents. Every student in the Children's Hospital School of Nursing, 
in groups of six, is assigned to this service for two months. There are 
four affiliating schools — representing the Newton Hospital, Melrose 
Hospital, Beverly Hospital, and Anna Jaques Hospital — whose stu- 
dents are received here for three months. Other affiliating students 
from the Peter Bent Brigham, New England Baptist, New England 
Deaconess, and Faulkner Hospitals are received for a period of one 
month. These affiliating students are received from hospitals which 
have no children's service or a service which is so small that it does 
not give the experience necessary to meet the requirements in pedi- 
atrics which are necessary to qualify as a registered nurse. During 
the period that the student is on duty in the Infants' Hospital she is 
given classes in the care of infants, and she receives also the general 
classes given in the Children's Hospital in the medical and surgical 
conditions found in children from two to twelve years of age. 

The student nurses work in three groups on an eight-hour day, 
one group having divided time between 7 A.M. and 7 P.M., another 
from 3 P.M. to 11, and still another from 11 P.M. to 7 A.M. Students 
are assigned under graduate supervision to the general wards, pre- 
mature nursery, food laboratory, and treatment room. A brief survey 
of the common round in the Infants' Hospital as it concerns the nursing 
service may be of interest. The day's work begins at 7 o'clock, when 
the night nurses give the report of the night's happenings to those in 
charge during the day. All babies are weighed by a graduate nurse, and 
the weights charted. Each baby is bathed. Student nurses work in 
pairs; one bathes the baby while the other makes the bed. In the next 
cubicle the order is reversed. After the bathing is finished, the tables 
in all cubicles are checked to see that they contain the necessary 
individual equipment, such as throat sticks, toothpicks for cleaning 
the nails, absorbent cotton, albolene, a thermometer, wrapping blanket 
and so on. Each baby must have its regular feedings and in addition 
cod liver oil and orange juice once a day and water three times a day. 
All babies have their temperatures taken twice a day and very sick 
babies every four hours. In addition to these routine procedures the 
babies must be kept dry and warm and clean. Practically all babies 
are taken out of their cribs while being fed. This gives opportunity 
for a little mothering of the baby, which is of extreme importance when 
a baby is in the hospital. Each baby is on individual precautions, and 
before a nurse goes into a cubicle she must wash her hands and put on. 
a gown. When she has finished her work in the cubicle she washes 
her hands thoroughly before going to the next baby. This is a time- 
consuming process, but this is outvalued by its success in the pre- 
vention of infection. 

When we count up the staff which we have at the Infants' Hospital 



ANNUAL REPORT 21 



it seems like a large staff, but when they are distributed over the 
twenty-four hours even the carrying out of the routine which I have 
outlined for approximately fifty babies — to say nothing of the detailed 
care which must be given to very sick babies — one becomes aware 
that it is more nearly a minimum rather than a maximum staff. It is 
not unusual during a month to have as many as twenty-five to thirty 
transfusions given, with even more intravenous administrations of glu- 
cose or the introduction of normal salt solution under the skin. The 
physician today does not wait for a baby to become dehydrated before 
fluid is given by one of the methods which introduces it almost directly 
into the blood stream; he prevents the dehydration. The increased 
use of these therapeutic measures has, of course, affected the amount 
and quality of nursing service necessary. 

We have presented rather sketchily the foreground of the picture 
— that which is readily seen daily in the wards of the Infants' Hospi- 
tal — but there is also the essential background which includes all the 
preliminary work which has taken place in preparing the equipment 
for these treatments, the solutions which must be made with the 
greatest precision and accuracy, and the preparation of the infants' 
food. In order for the student nurse to function adequately at the 
Infants' Hospital her preparation must begin when she first enters a 
School of Nursing, that she may be trained in the techniques of nursing 
and in addition given a sound scientific basis for the skill that there 
may not merely be a technique but an intelligent understanding of 
the sciences which underlie and contribute to nursing practice. There 
is no field in which a nurse may have more opportunity for attaining 
these objectives than in the care of sick babies. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stella Goostray, 
January 27, 1932. Superintendent of Nurses.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 
FOR THE YEAR 1932 

Despite the relatively low incidence of disease during the 
summer and early fall months of 1932 the total number of patients 
exceeded the number treated in the previous year. In 193 1, eight 
hundred twenty-nine (829) patients were admitted, whereas in 
1932 eight hundred forty-five (845) were admitted. The mortality 
rate was 18.2 per cent. 

There has been a steady reduction in the death rate among 
infants during the past twenty years which has come about from 
the acquisition of knowledge relating to the prevention and cure 
of disease and its dissemination to mothers, nurses, and doctors. 
But even now when it is recalled that nine times as many babies 
die within the first year of life as in the rest of childhood combined, 
it remains imperative that health measures, teaching and research 
must not be relaxed. The responsibility which the Hospital bears 
must also be continued and strengthened, especially on account of 
the present crisis. The resultant effects on health of the economic 
depression and unemployment undoubtedly will be followed by an 
increase of sickness unless the known measures for keeping children 
well are maintained vigorously. Statistics show, already, that mal- 
nutrition, rickets, scurvy, tuberculosis, syphilis, and other diseases 
are increasing steadily, at home and abroad. Forewarned is fore- 
armed and the friends of the Hospital must support the Hospital 
generously if it is to continue to meet, at all times, any increasing 
demand for service in the community. 

A final resume of the study which has been carried on in the 
premature wards during the past six years has been completed. 
The percentile mortality during the three-year period after the 
installation of this mechanical device emphasizes most strikingly 
the benefits derived from keeping premature babies in a controlled 
temperature and humidity environment. From 1923 to 1926 the 
total net mortality was about twenty-nine per cent whereas in the 
air-conditioned nurseries (1927 to 1930) it was seven per cent. In 
other words there was a reduction in mortality of nearly seventy- 
five per cent. It is difficult to escape the conviction that the insti- 
tution of this device plays a major part in the hospital care of 
premature infants. However, credit must not be given to a mechan- 
ical apparatus alone. Equally important is the careful supervision 
and care rendered by the nursing and medical staff. 

During the summer an air-cooling machine was placed in one 



INFANTS' HOSPITAL 



of the wards on the second floor, for the purpose of cooling the 
atmosphere during the extremely hot days of the summer months. 
The installation of this device undoubtedly rendered the tempera- 
ture conditions much more comfortable to the personnel and 
beneficial to the little patients. This experience leads us to suggest 
that, when it is possible, measures to improve the ventilating sys- 
tem of the second floor wards particularly should be taken under 
consideration. 

A respirator room, which accommodates four children at one 
time, has been constructed in the basement. This is arranged so 
as to permit a doctor and nurse to enter while the patients are 
receiving artificial respiration. It has the important advantage of 
making it possible for patients to receive complete general nursing 
and medical care without interfering with the mechanism of res- 
piration, so necessary in the respiratory types of infantile paralysis. 

Special reference is made to certain investigations illustrating 
that, as in the past, research is being carried on for the purpose of 
securing a better understanding and a consequent improvement in 
the treatment of infantile disease. The cause of such grave signs as 
jaundice and anemia in newly born infants has been puzzling 
physicians for many years. It has been shown that these symptoms 
are dependent on one and the same underlying pathological cause. 
From this information a new plan of treatment has been instituted 
which has resulted in the saving of the lives of several babies who, 
presumably, otherwise would not have lived. 

Studies have likewise been made which have given us a more 
clear conception as to the cause of cyanosis which is frequent in 
premature and newly born infants. As the result of detailed clin- 
ical and laboratory investigations it has been found that this sign 
may be due occasionally to incomplete development of the lungs, 
but that usually it is secondary to an existing infection or to injury 
of the brain. 

Reference should be made to other lines of investigation such 
as the treatment of rickets which has resisted stubbornly the usual 
forms of treatment, and to the beneficial effect of changing the 
temperature and humidity conditions in the acute severe and dis- 
tressing forms of pneumonia. 

Early in the year changes were put into operation for econom- 
ical reasons which should tend to lessen the high cost of medical 
care. The feeding problem was investigated and it was found that 
in special cases, without detriment to the patient, a distinct saving 
could be made by limiting the amount of woman's milk; by using 
evaporated milk in place of grade A milk and by using a satis- 
factory substitute for the specially prepared fat-free milk; it was 



ANNUAL REPORT 



hoped that the number of special diagnostic methods could be 
reduced by closer consultation with the directors of the different 
laboratories, and it was believed that a considerable wastage of heat 
could be prevented by charting the temperature of the wards at 
regular intervals. Indirectly this would improve also the environ- 
ment for nurses, doctors, and the patients. These among other 
routines will be continued in the effort to reduce the overhead 
charges of the Hospital. 

The rearrangement of the diet kitchen and its equipment with 
modern utensils and the innovation of having the daily records 
charted by a secretary has lessened inevitably the routine work of 
the nurses, thereby permitting them to give more direct personal 
care and supervision to the critically ill babies. 

Appreciation is expressed to the Superintendent, the Ladies 
Aid Society, and the Directors for their understanding and helpful- 
ness in making it possible to best meet the many problems which 
arise in ministering to sick babies. Acknowledgment is made to 
the members of the nursing and medical staff, and the social service 
worker, for their stimulating interest and cooperation in sharing 
the responsibilities of the medical care of patients, of research, and 
of teaching. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth D. Blackfan.

12 INFANTS' HOSPITAL 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT 

The year 1932, with its persistent economic unrest, has pre- 
sented many difficult circumstances, but we are able to look back 
with pride on our service to the community. Burdens in the care 
of non-paying patients and demands for increased service were 
accepted with confidence, and doctors, nurses, and employees have 
been loyal and faithful in the discharge of their duties. Statistics 
show eight hundred forty-five (845) admissions during the year, 
compared with eight hundred twenty-nine (829) last year, and a 
daily average of forty-two (42) patients treated. Continued unem- 
ployment has made it very difficult for parents to meet the addi- 
tional obligations of hospital expenses, and seventy-one per cent of 
the admissions were given substantially reduced rates or treated 
free. During the latter part of the year, especially, the type of case 
treated has indicated undernourishment and improper feeding, and 
in many cases the attitude of the mother has been of a very de- 
jected and discouraged nature, whereas in normal times this condi- 
tion was rare. The staff of the Hospital remains essentially the 
same as last year and is as follows: 

Graduate day supervisor; two graduate head nurses (one on 
each floor); graduate in charge of Food Laboratory; graduate in 
charge of Treatment Room; three general staff nurses; twenty- 
three student nurses; social service worker; social service stenog- 
rapher; recorder; assistant recorder; five attendants; two porters. 

Outstanding among our achievements last year was the con- 
struction of a room-sized respirator in the basement. The distinct 
advantage of this device is that it enables the nurse or doctor enter- 
ing the respirator to give the patient as good treatment and as 
careful diagnostic study during his illness, as could be carried out 
with a sick patient in his bed. This was impossible with the indi- 
vidual type respirator, since the patient's body could be reached 
only by inserting the hands through numerous small openings in 
the side of the machine, and obviously this method greatly elim- 
inated effective treatment. Another decidedly important advan- 
tage of this room is that it permits treatment of four patients 
simultaneously. The practicability of this arrangement has been 
demonstrated by the construction of this machine, and during 
times of epidemic will undoubtedly be of great assistance, not only 
for our own use but also because by its construction many details 
and recommendations to be incorporated in the construction of 
such machines elsewhere have been indefinitely worked out. 
Through the cooperation of Mr. Drinker of the School of Public 
Health, Mr. Warren Collins, and the doctors on our staff, this room 
was constructed without expense to either the Infants' or Chil- 
dren's Hospital. 

Brine refrigeration equipment in the Food Laboratory was 
replaced with a large General Electric refrigerator, and a smaller 
type refrigerator for the storage of serums was purchased for the 
upper ward. Both orders were placed through Mr. Stockton at a 
special price, and we are most grateful to the Ladies Aid Com- 
mittee through whose generosity this valuable addition to our 
equipment was provided. The removal of the old ice box and a 






ANNUAL REPORT 13 



partition made possible increased working space and eliminated 
many inadequacies and difficulties. All work, together with the 
painting of the laboratory throughout was taken care of by the 
regular mechanical force. One condition which developed during 
the alterations would have required attention had it not been 
detected. It appears that moisture and brine had seeped through 
into a network of electric wires which controlled all basement and 
milk room lights, and on numerous occasions we had difficulty with 
grounds which could not be located. These wires were renewed 
and are now run exposed on the basement ceiling. 

Essential improvements or repairs have been taken care of in 
most cases by the regular mechanical force. The Premature, 
Metabolism and Milk Rooms were painted, and all scientific appa- 
ratus connected with the two former rooms thoroughly cleaned 
during the summer months. An orderly during his spare time 
painted all outside window and door frames under the supervision 
of the head painter. Repairs to a leak in the roof calling for renewal 
of slates were taken care of by an outside firm. The replacement 
of awnings which have been in use for many years and are worn 
to a state where further repair is impossible may have to be con- 
sidered during the coming summer. 

To the Ladies Aid Committee we are grateful for generous 
and immediate response to all requests. Some new cribs and 
extensive repairs to old type cribs were authorized and completed. 
Play-yards and rocking-horses, also added to ward equipment, 
have been enjoyed by the older babies who seem to improve more 
rapidly with means of increased activity which their beds do not 
allow. The nurses and doctors are most appreciative of teas pro- 
vided, also magazines and theatre tickets. A very thorough linen 
inventory taken early in the year revealed an ample supply of some 
items and purchases were confined to articles absolutely necessary. 
As in the past the Needlewomen's Friend Society took care of 
making up all little garments, and other linen requirements with 
complete satisfaction. This worthy contribution to the work of 
the Hospital was further supplemented by the annual donation 
of the Boston Branch of the Needlework Guild of America through 
Mrs. Guy Cunningham. Approximately one thousand articles of 
clothing, linen and knitted goods were given and used to very good 
advantage. 

The cooperation and support of the Directors and the Ladies 
Aid Committee is acknowledged with sincere thanks. 

Ida C. Smith, Superintendent.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL 
LADIES AID COMMITTEE ANNUAL REPORT 

The Ladies Aid Committee has met regularly during the year. 
There is a considerable amount of interest shown by all the mem- 
bers and the meetings are very well attended, the average number 
present at each meeting being twenty-one. 

We again have paid for two beds in the Hospital and we earn- 
estly hope that this can be done annually. We have given two 
refrigerators and two cribs to the Hospital, and we have paid for 
the renovation of eight old cribs. We supplied Miss Smith with 
a hundred dollars for her emergency fund. 

Our entertainment for making money this year has been two 
subscription dances at Boston's new night club, The Barclay. In 
this way we hope to raise over a thousand dollars. 

The nurses' teas are held once a month and are extremely 
popular and well attended. The nurses are very enthusiastic about 
them. 

We have quite a few new members and very few resignations. 
We all hope to help the Hospital in every possible way during 
the year 1933. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edith Prescott Wolcott, Secretary. 



TEAS REPORT 

Three of the Infants' Hospital teas have already been given, 
and have been a great success. Several people have very kindly 
offered to give teas during the winter, and the generosity of all 
those who have so offered is greatly appreciated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rosamond Blanchard, Chairman. 



INFANTS' HOSPITAL 



REPORT OF THE 
SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE 

Committee for 1932 
Mrs. John Homans, Jr., Chairman 

Of the number of babies discharged from the Infants' Hos- 
pital during 1932, one hundred fifty-one (151) were referred to the 
social worker for special follow-up work. Twenty-nine (29) babies 
were sent to Wellesley for a period of convalescence, four were re- 
ferred to child-placing agencies, and three were sent to North 
Reading Tuberculosis Sanatorium. The families of nine babies 
who had tuberculosis were visited, and arrangements were made 
whereby the parents and children who had been in contact with 
the sick babies could be examined at the tuberculosis clinics, to 
rule out infection in other members of the family, or to transfer 
such to the supervision of the Boston Tuberculosis Department. 
One baby was admitted to the Hospital with an upper respiratory 
infection. When the worker visited the home, she found that 
the mother had left a sanatorium greatly against the wishes 
of her family. After several consultations, the Tuberculosis De- 
partment gave permission for her to be readmitted, and she was 
persuaded to return, after she was reassured of the baby's recovery. 
Then he was allowed to go back to his home and the relatives who 
were caring for him. One baby who died of tuberculosis had lived 
in a city outside of Boston to which the family had come from 
Maine several months previously, hoping to find work in Massa- 
chusetts. After the parents and six children were examined as con- 
tacts, arrangements were made by the State Temporary Aid to 
send the family back to its home in Maine, with recommendations 
to the proper authorities for further medical supervision. 

Again this year the usual visits were made to the premature 
babies who are visited yearly to find out their progress. Several 
groups of babies were visited in order to ask that they be brought 
to the Medical Out-Patient Department for an examination by 
doctors who were making special studies. 

A survey has been made of the attendance at the Return Clinic 
to which the mothers are requested to bring the babies within ten 
days or two weeks after their discharge from the Hospital. After 
such a visit they are referred to the family doctor, or the Well 
Baby Clinic, or the Medical Out-Patient Department. Many of 
the mothers have made a special effort to attend that clinic. 

The worker has made one thousand two hundred twenty-nine 
(1,229) visits to homes and to various private and city and state 
agencies. 



ANNUAL REPORT 19 



From the Emergency Fund given your worker for special 
needs, she has bought medicine for one baby, shoes and clothing. 
Twice she has paid a deposit of three dollars and fifty cents required 
when a mother has to borrow a breast pump while her baby is in 
the Hospital. As soon as the pump is returned, the deposit is put 
back into the fund. 

A special donation (from a member of the Ladies Aid Associa- 
tion) bought clothing, shoes and rubbers for three little children, 
all very much needed and very gratefully received. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alice S. Homans. 



2o INFANTS' HOSPITAL 



REPORT OF THE NURSING SERVICE 

1932 

There have been several changes in the staff of the Infants' 
Hospital during the year. On February I Isabelle M. Jordan, 
Class of 1925, became Supervisor. Miss Jordan brings to her work 
there a good background of experience, including several years at 
the Babies' Hospital in Cleveland as well as post-graduate work in 
administration and supervision of nursing education. There were 
two other changes in the graduate nurse staff, the places being 
taken by Children's Hospital graduates. 

Although we have twenty-three students assigned to the 
Infants' Hospital we must count on approximately one student 
off the ward daily for illness. The daily average census for student 
nurses on duty during the year was 22.153. Of these twenty-three 
student nurses three are assigned to the milk laboratory and two 
to the treatment room to cover the period from 7 a.m. to 1 1 p.m. 
Four students are on night duty from 1 1 p.m. to 7 a.m. As these 
stations must always be covered, any shortage must come from 
the remaining group who are assigned to the wards. This leaves 
fourteen student nurses, each of whom is on an eight-hour day, to 
cover the wards between seven in the morning and eleven at night. 
If each one of these fourteen student nurses is on duty it means 
about two and one-fourth hours of nursing service for each baby 
in a period of sixteen hours. Of course, this service is supplemented 
somewhat by the attendants, although most of their time has to 
be devoted to cleaning, taking babies to X-ray, and other non- 
nursing duties. One graduate is assigned to the treatment room, 
another to the milk laboratory, one on each ward during the day 
and night, and one to care for the premature babies and supple- 
ment the work of the head nurses on the lower ward. The treat- 
ment room nurse and the head nurse on the upper ward also relieve 
each other. 

In a unit such as the Infants' Hospital one has to be con- 
stantly on the alert to emphasize the teaching of student nurses. 
Unless this is done the care of infants, after the acute stage of ill- 
ness has passed, may become a routine of bathing a baby or feed- 
ing a baby, washing the hands, changing the gown, and going to 
the next baby and carrying out the same routine. 

The question is sometimes asked, "What happens when the 
census of patients is low and the census of nurses remains the 
same?" The answer is that sick babies get more individual nurs- 
ing care, and it is possible to spend time in training the older 
babies in the habits of eating. It would be a great step in advance 



ANNUAL REPORT 21 



if we could do more in the way of training the babies. In many 
cases it would prevent a return of the condition which brought 
them into the Hospital. 

This year an attempt has been made to give instruction to 
mothers of premature babies in relation to their care and feeding 
previous to the discharge of the babies, in order that the good 
beginning made in the Hospital may continue at home. Arrange- 
ments have been made by the Supervisor with each mother for 
this instruction, and it has been given as the mother could take 
the time to come in. One premature baby, who went home recently, 
was shifted entirely from breast milk and bottle feedings to regular 
breast feeding before he went home. His mother bathed him under 
supervision, and as he was her first baby she took him home feel- 
ing much more confident. Only one premature baby has been 
readmitted this year. Similar instruction has been given to the 
mothers of two babies who were "ruminators" and over a period 
of several days they fed their babies under supervision. Neither 
baby has been readmitted. 

An attempt is being made to keep all crib infants on one 
side, thereby subjecting them to a routine better suited to their 
ages, such as a nap after luncheon. Each baby is fed, laid down 
and covered with a blanket, and his shade is drawn. It is remark- 
able how quiet these babies are and how quickly they form a 
habit and go to sleep. At night emphasis is laid on keeping lights 
as dim as possible, and by separating these age groups the older 
ones are less disturbed. 

During November at one time there were nine babies very ill 
with pneumonia, one of them being only three months old. She 
was unable to be removed from the oxygen tent even for the slight- 
est procedure without becoming very cyanotic. It is in cases such 
as this that the value of the oxygen tent is apparent, but the use 
of all this kind of apparatus is a time-consuming factor in the 
nursing service as they all have to be watched very carefully. 

The installment of the electric refrigerator and the enlarge- 
ment of the kitchen in connection with the milk formula room 
have been very much appreciated. During the last part of this 
year evaporated milk has been substituted in formulae and in 
general cooking wherever possible and has proved satisfactory. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stella Goostray, Superintendent of Nurses.

REPORT OF THE HOSPITAL DIRECTOR 



Admissions to the Hospital during 1933 totalled 770, a decrease 
of 75 when compared with 1932, and there were 13,305 Hospital 
days compared with 15,355 in 1932. The average per diem census 
was 30 for 1933, as against 42 for 1932. 

These decreases are due to the action taken by the Directors in 
May 1933, when they deeidecbto reduce the bed capacity from 50 to 
35. It was estimated that this would save at the rate of $5, 000, a 
year in expenses. 

It is encouraging to find that income from patients fell off only 
$727 in 1933, whereas operating costs were reduced by $6,148.00, 
a net betterment over 1932 of $5,421.00 in the operating statement. 
From an economic angle the curtailment was more than successful 
— from an administrative angle, however, it was a failure, and had 
to be modified in November. Having all 35 beds on one floor be- 
tween May and November resulted in such congestion as to impair 
the standard of care given the infants. The Directors promptly 
authorized opening one-half of the lower floor, and at small expense 
we were thus able — 1. To redistribute the beds, 2. Relieve the con- 
gestion, 3. Revert to the former standards of nursing care. 

A study of the effects of certain diets and food products on 
rachitic cases was proposed by the Food and Drug Administration 
of the Department of Agriculture. This study had to be tempor- 
arily abandoned on account of the lack of sufficient rachitic cases 
to properly conduct the study. Another study as to the effect of 
certain medicated milk products is contemplated involving fewer 
cases. This is to be financed by a large industrial concern. 

Such studies, if they can be conducted from time to time, 
should be of tremendous value to the Hospital, and to pediatrics 
in general. 

The Directors should have every reason to be pleased, the 
parents every reason to rejoice over the progress that is being made 
in infant pediatrics. Both the Medical Staff under the direction of 
Dr. Blackfan, and the nursing care under Miss Jordan, are to be 
highly commended for the general technique, and for the many 
"miracles" performed on desperately sick infants. 

G. v. L. Meyer, Hospital Director. 



REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 
FOR THE YEAR 1933 

Notwithstanding the various efforts which were made during 

1932 to lessen the overhead expenses, it became obvious early in 

1933 that a more radical policy must be adopted in order to offset 
the steadily diminishing resources from investment earnings, 
collectable charges from patients, and generous contributions from 
friends of the Hospital. 

As the aim of the Infants' Hospital always has been to give 
the best of modern medical and nursing care to babies who seek 
its help, it became apparent that rather than lessen the quality 
of the service it would be best to meet the emergency by closing 
one floor and limiting the daily average number of patients, — 
particularly stressing the fact that no emergency cases should 
be turned away and preserving the ideal measures for the care of 
premature infants. Whereas this temporary policy resulted in a 
sizeable reduction of the overhead expenses, it is of interest to note 
that with a daily average of forty-two patients in 1932 and a daily 
average of thirty patients in 1933, the total number of patients 
admitted in this year was only seventy-five patients less than in 
the former year. The maintenance of this large service to the com- 
munity, particularly during a year in which the seasonal incidence 
of disease has been strikingly low, was accomplished through the 
efforts of the personnel (the medical, nursing and social service 
staff) by affording the needed care and treatment as rapidly as 
possible so that the patients could be returned to their homes with 
a minimum stay in the Hospital. The average stay of patients this 
year has been sixteen days as contrasted with eighteen days for 
last year. From this accomplishment we have learned much. Every 
effort should be made in subsequent years to maintain this average, 
for by shortening the length of stay, hospital charges are reduced, 
thereby meeting one of the principal reasons for the increasing 
costs of medical care to sick babies. The Hospital benefits equally 
as it increases materially the number of patients cared for. After 
several months trial, however, it became obvious that concentrat- 
ing all of the infants on one floor made it difficult to maintain the 
same high standard of nursing and medical care. It was found that 
by adhering to the same daily quota of patients, a redistribution 
of patients could be made without materially increasing the per- 
sonnel. On November 9th, authorization was given to remove the 
eleven -over-flow patients from upstairs to the Warren side of the 
Infants' first floor ward. This move necessitated adding a maid to 
the milk laboratory and a part-time secretary to the wards. The 
ward secretary has proved a very valuable and practical asset to 
the staff, relieving the head nurses of much routine chart work and 
enabling them to spend more time in the work in which they are 
especially skilled. More time for supervision of the student nurses 
and more individual care of the little patients results. It is with 
appreciation and satisfaction that one contrasts the present situ- 
ation of quiet and order of the Infants' Hospital wards with the 
confusing state during the summer. 



In previous reports, reference has been made to the effective 
facilities available for the care of premature infants. Inasmuch as 
it has been well established that the smaller the infant the less its 
chance of survival, it is interesting to note that eight premature 
infants weighing less than two pounds were admitted. The four 
babies who survived weighed respectively 1 lb. 15 oz., 1 lb. 13 oz., 
1 lb. 12 oz., 1 lb. 10^ oz. 

The Infants' Hospital has carried on its activities in the teach- 
ing of medical students and nurses as in former years. There have 
been also a relatively large number of graduate students and visit- 
ing physicians from this country and abroad. Just how far afield 
the routines practiced here are distributed can be gleaned from the 
statement that two recent graduates are now at the Peiping Union 
Medical College, Peiping, China; one graduate is in charge of 
Pediatrics in Bankok, Siam, and one graduate leaves shortly to 
take charge of the children's work at the St. Luke's Hospital, 
Tokio, Japan. In a sense, one of the important services which the 
Infants' Hospital renders to humanity is by so scattering knowl- 
edge pertaining to the care and treatment of babies throughout 
the world. 

A number of contributions resulting from research activities 
have been made possible by the complete and effective equipment 
which the Hospital affords, and its relation to the Department of 
Pediatrics of the Harvard Medical School. One very important 
change in the treatment of syphilis is being tried. Heretofore this 
dreadful malady has been treated by means of arsenical compounds 
injected directly into the muscles. At the present time we are trying 
a new anti-syphilitic product which can be mixed with the 
milk and given by bottle thus sparing the suffering occasioned by 
the use of the hypodermic syringe as well as lessening the amount 
of days spent in the Hospital, for this drug can be given in the home 
just as so many other valuable remedies are now given. 

Miss Ida C. Smith's resignation from the position of Superin- 
tendent became effective in July of the past year. Although her 
efficient and gracious presence is greatly missed by all of us, never- 
theless the splendid spirit and the faithful and understanding 
service which she has given the Hospital for so many years will 
continue as an inspiration to us. All those who have been associ- 
ated with the Infants' Hospital must feel how much of its present 
honor and prestige are due entirely to her high standards and her 
untiring endeavor to maintain them. 

Appreciation is expressed to the new Director of the Hospital 
for his understanding and helofulness in making it possible to best 
meet the many problems which arise in ministering to sick babies. 
We are grateful to the Ladies' Aid Society and to the Board of 
Directors of the Hospital for their continued support, and acknowl- 
edgment is made to the members of the nursing and medical staff 
and the social service worker, for their stimulating interest and 
cooperation in sharing the responsibilities of the medical care_of 
patients, of research, and of teaching. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth D. Blackfan, M. D.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

LADIES AID COMMITTEE 

ANNUAL REPORT 

The Ladies Aid Committee has met regularly during the year. 
The meetings have been well attended, and the interest of the 
members is an increasing asset. 

The dances given at the Barclay Club early in the year were 
a great success. A Roller-Skating Party, or a Circus Cabaret has 
been suggested for our entertainment this year, but is being post- 
poned until the Emergency Campaign is over. 

We were able to give three beds to the Hospital this year. 
It was very pleasing to give one more bed than in previous years. 
We are also giving six portable lights for the cubicles. 

The nurses' teas continues to be very popular, and the nurses 
seem to enjoy them a great deal. 

We have been most fortunate in having several interesting 
speakers at some of our meetings. Dr. Blackfan spoke once on the 
excellent work being done in the Hospital. Mr. George von L. 
Meyer spoke to us another time about the various departments, 
and also about the new research work being done on rickets, for 
which one half the lower floor of the Hospital is to be opened. Miss 
Story told us of the Social Service work one time, and Mrs. H. 
Parker Whittington spoke to us recently on the Emergency Cam- 
paign of 1934. We hope to have speakers at many of our meetings 
in the future, to keep us in touch with the Hospital work, and 
increase the interest of the members of the Committee. 

There have been very few resignations, and quite a few new 
members. We hope that we shall be able to help the Hospital in 
every possible way during the year 1934. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Evelyn A. Royce, 

Secretary

REPORT OF THE 
SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE 



At the end of the year 1933 the Social Service 
Worker reports that she has opened 145 cases needing 
intensive care, and has made 1192 follow-up and in- 
structive visits, to homes, interested individuals and 
agencies, in behalf of the patients. 

Thirty-nine babies were transferred to the super- 
vision of other agencies. Of these ten went to Wellesley 
for further care and convalescent period before return- 
ing to their homes. Five babies with tuberculosis were 
discharged to North Reading and the contacts were 
either examined in the Out Patient Department — or 
referred to the local Board of Health for examination 
and follow-up by the Tuberculosis Department. The 
Blind Babies' Nursery took three babies for a period 
of several months because the parents could not afford 
the special formulas ordered. In seven cases the Family 
Welfare Society either re-assumed supervision, or agreed 
to take under its care the home, where financial difficul- 
ties, and a too small income made it impossible to fur- 
nish milk and orange juice and cod liver oil ordered by 
the Hospital for the baby. 

With the aid of the Red Cross, the Worker has fur- 
nished clothing, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, 
toys and needed medicine to various families. 

The Infants' Return Clinic, to which the babies 
discharged from the Hospital are requested to return 
for one visit, is still functioning with a large proportion 
of babies attending. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alice Homans, Chairman. 




GOOD EVENING!

REPORT OF THE NURSING SERVICE 

1933 

The School of Nursing has continued to furnish the nursing 
service for the Infants' Hospital through the assignment of Chil- 
dren's Hospital students and affiliating students for periods aver- 
aging from one to three months. Eight schools in Boston and 
surrounding towns are represented in these affiliations. 23 student 
nurses are regularly assigned to the Infants' Hospital, but this does 
not mean that there are 23 students on duty for the twenty-four 
hour period. The daily average of student nurses on duty during 
the year was 21.404, daily average of illness .704, and leave of 
absence following illness .403. The daily average on duty is .749 
less than last year because during part of the year only 22 students 
were regularly assigned. 

When the number of patients was limited, as an economy 
measure, the nursing staff was reduced by one graduate nurse, 
three attendants, and part of the time by one student nurse. In 
addition the half time of a stenographer, used for clinical charts, 
etc., was dispensed with. In order to care for a maximum number 
of patients with the reduced personnel, it was necessary to concen- 
trate the patients, except for the prematures, on one floor. An extra 
bed was added to each ward, three beds used in each sun parlor, 
and five beds in the metabolism ward, giving a capacity of 35 beds 
in addition to the prematures. It was soon evident that we could 
not maintain the same standard of nursing care under the crowded 
conditions. Considerable effort previously had been made to keep 
crib babies in a separate unit from babies in bassinets in order that 
the nurses might pay some attention to habit formation in the older 
group of children. Of course, this was practically impossible with 
the curtailment of space. With the possibility of research work in 
rickets and to improve the medical and nursing service, the patients 
were redistributed in November. The staff was restored to its 
normal number for a short period because of the rickets work, but 
was again reduced in December awaiting further developments. 

We have had an unusual number of prematures during the 
year. The daily average of prematures was 4.6. At one time we 
had premature babies in the metabolism room, in incubators, and 
in the air-conditioned room in order that the environment might 
be maintained at the temperature necessary for individual needs. 
The increased number of prematures has taxed the nursing service 
considerably as many of these babies have been very small. One 
baby whose birth weight was 1 lb. 10 oz. has been in the Hospital 
since September. We have had many weighing just a few ounces 
more. During the first few weeks after admission these babies must 
have constant care as they have to be suctioned very often to re- 
move mucus, and artificial respiration frequently is necessary. The 
Supervisor in charge has continued to give instruction to mothers 
of premature babies before the babies leave the Hospital. This 
includes supervising the mother giving the baby a bath and em- 
phasizing the proper feeding of the baby. 



19 



A study was made in the metabolism room to collect data 
relative to the effect of air-conditioning on weight gain. These 
studies, of course, require extra supervision of the student nurses, 
but in turn afford the students a chance to care for particular 
babies throughout an entire day. We wish it were possible to have 
a staff which made the latter plan feasible for all the babies on the 
wards. It is not possible, however, to follow this system entirely, 
but we are modifying the co-called efficiency method insofar as 
possible by assigning specific patients to nurses rather than having 
one nurse take temperatures, another give medications, and anoth- 
er change babies. While no doubt this latter practice is a time- 
saving method it does not teach the fine art of nursing to students. 

During the fall semester one of our five-year students attend- 
ing Simmons College has been assigned to the Infants' Hospital 
for experience in head nursing. This is practice work required by 
Simmons College, and there is no charge for maintenance to In- 
fants' Hospital, the student maintaining herself outside of the 
Hospital. She gives sufficient help, however, to recompense us for 
the time spent in supervising her work. 

The graduate staff on the closing day of the year was as 
follows : 

1 Supervisor 

2 Graduate Head Nurses 

1 Assistant Head Nurse — Treatment Room 

1 Assistant Head Nurse — Food Laboratory 

2 Staff Nurses — nights 

The graduate nurse on the Lower Ward is responsible for the 
care of prematures under this present arrangement. There are 
three attendants. 

The School of Nursing is grateful to the Ladies Aid Com- 
mittee for its share in the nurses' teas held during the winter 
months. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stella Goostray, 

Superintendent of Nurses

RETURNED TO HER HAPPY HOME 




Diana didn't look or act like this when she first came to us. She 
had a form of severe chronic indigestion and only after a long peri- 
od with rigidly maintained diet of sour skim milk, cheese, and 
bananas, which she didn't like at first, did she become happy, re- 
gain her appetite, and want to play. Here she is returned to her 
happy home. 



A YOUTHFUL ENGINEER 



No one would think this 
little nineteen-month- 
old baby boy needed spe- 
cial care, but because of 
severe attacks of spas- 
modic bronchitis his pa- 
rents brought him to the 
Hospital three times dur- 
ing the past year. Each 
time he was semi-con- 
scious, was blue and was 
breathing so laboriously 
that he had to be placed 
immediately in an oxy- 
gen tent to afford him 
relief. On each occasion, 
after forty-eight hours, 
he had recovered suffi- 
ciently to push away the 
oxygen-tent hood, and 
sometimes even to get from under it and be willing and ready to 
play with passers-by. He was very cunning and on his last ad- 
mission was making an effort to talk. He played by himself very 
well, and was observed frequently as in the picture — engrossed in 
the underneath part of a small automobile. 




A REAL JOY IN EATING 



When he was brought to 
the Hospital, John O'D. 
was a thin child, pale as 
a sheet, with a worried 
expression. He cried on 
the slightest provocation. 
He had a form of anemia 
caused by lack of proper 
food. Twenty-one days 
later he was seen vigor- 
ously rocking in his rock- 
ing-horse and talking to 
an imaginary playmate.- 
His cheeks were begin- 
ning to fill out, his color 
had improved, and he 
was exhibiting a real joy 
in eating. 




REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 
FOR THE YEAR 1934 



This seems a fitting time to review the activities of the past few 
years, especially as many of the newer members of the corporation 
and their friends have not watched closely the growth of the In- 
fants' Hospital since the time of its inception by Dr. Thomas Mor- 
gan Rotch in 1 88 1 . He was the first Professor of Pediatrics at 
Harvard Medical School, and it was because of his firm belief that 
the nursing requirements of the infant differed so widely from those 
of the child that the institution, the first of its kind in the United 
States, was founded. 

With the rapid advances in medicine and nursing, it finally 
became obvious that the separation of infants and children in two 
different institutions was costly, and that it would be mutually 
advantageous if the Infants' Hospital and the Children's Hospital 
could function as a single unit. So in 1923 the present Thomas 
Morgan Rotch, Jr., Memorial Building, designed especially for the 
medical care of infants under two years of age, was erected on 
grounds leased from the Children's Hospital. It should be made 
clear that although they function as a single unit they are separate 
institutions, each managed by its own Board of Directors, each 
retaining its own Board of Ladies' Aid Organization, and each 
raising its own funds. 

The Infants' Hospital has not stood still in the years intervening 
between 1923 and 1934. The Premature Ward has been re- 
modelled and in it has been installed an air-conditioning system 
whereby the temperature and humidity relations ideal for prema- 
turely born infants can be maintained. This year, from this up- 
to-date room, three sets of twins weighing less than three pounds 
each when admitted, were returned in health and happiness to 
their mothers. A sun-roof has been built equipped with ultra- 
violet glass and mercury vapor quartz lamps. There has been a 
rearrangement of many of the rooms and the original building has 
been enlarged. The rearrangement of the utility rooms, by bring- 
ing them closer to the wards, has eased considerably the work of 
the nurses. A Rest Room for Mothers has been developed and 
suitable offices have been provided for the Record Clerk and the 
Social Service Worker. The new addition now makes it possible 
to have a teaching room and a larger treatment room. A new 
milk room wdth modern appliances has been constructed in the 
basement. To avoid cross-infection so far as possible, each in- 
fant has its bed or bassinette in a separate cubicle with a chair, 
a table and its individual toilet accessories. The nurses and doc- 
tors wear clean gowns in caring for each baby. 

To be prepared to offer the best of present-day methods for the 
diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of infantile diseases, 



specialized, oftentimes expensive, mechanical equipment has been 
acquired. The distressing breathing of pneumonia is relieved 
when the infant stays in a small tent continually filled with oxy- 
gen. The children's oxygen tent is not adaptable to a three- 
months old infant and units had to be especially devised for our 
wards. As this is being written there are eleven babies critically 
ill with pneumonia who need oxygen therapy. Besides the com- 
fort afforded the sufferer, it is not too much to say that this new 
plan of treatment saves life. 

Think of the little baby with vomiting and diarrhea who can 
not retain food or water. These life-saving restorative substances 
must be given directly and continuously into the vein. Actually 
they are more essential than any drugs which were employed in 
olden times. In the summer of 1934 twenty-seven babies were 
treated by this new intravenous drip method. It too saves life, 
but both these new advances in treatment require not only new 
equipment but constant supervision of nurses who must be expert 
in the practice of these techniques. 

The visiting staff is composed of specialists who enable us to 
meet the rare as well as the common medical problems. For in- 
stance, Baby Carlton was the victim of severe eczema and finally 
the right eye became badly infected. In spite of the constant care 
of the ophthalmologist, the eye was destroyed by the disease. Its 
removal at the correct time saved the other eye. At the appropri- 
ate time a glass eye was fitted to this eight-months old baby. 

The X-ray, Chemical, Bacteriological, and Pathological labora- 
tories must not be overlooked, as today such adjuncts to the In- 
fants' Hospital have actually transformed the diagnosis by infer- 
ence into precise diagnosis. 

Prior to 1932 over eight hundred babies per year were brought 
to and cared for at the Infants-' Hospital. Then as a sequella to 
the depression it became necessary to take a radical step. Some- 
thing had to be done to offset the steadily diminishing resources 
from investment earnings, collectable charges from patients and 
lessening contributions from friends of the Hospital. There was 
but oneway to meet the emergency . This was to limit the daily 
average of patients rather than to lower the standards of medical 
care and nursing, stressing particularly that no critically ill infant 
would be turned away, and preserving the ideal care for premature 
infants. 

In summary then it may be said that the Infants' Hospital, a 
two-story hospital building, is complete within itself. It is in a 
position to care for all types of diseases to which infants under two 
years of age are susceptible, to carry forward the search for fur- 
ther knowledge and to train doctors and nurses. 

Turning now to the present. What problems face us with re- 
spect to the future? 

New and more accurate concepts of disease, greater precision 
in diagnosis, gradually change our point of emphasis in treatment. 
In the case of children and adults we have long since learned that 
sorrow, disappointment and other mental attitudes induced by a 



complex environment are of great importance in relation to the 
symptoms of ill health. We know that even without structural 
disease changes involving the liver, lungs, kidneys, or other organs 
an individual can be far less than healthy. The importance of this 
aspect of the care of small infants is less generally recognized, and 
that a little baby's health can be influenced by an attitude of 
fussy worry on its mother's part or of irritability and hurry in a 
strange nurse, is too little appreciated. 

Again and again a fretful baby, admitted to our wards because 
of failure to gain, crying, vomiting and diarrhea, is taken from 
the care of a worried, tired, yet conscientious and intelligent 
mother, and on the ward in a few days stops crying, begins to smile 
and gain weight. No disease has been found. Often no really 
essential change in the feeding formula is made, yet the baby im- 
proves. 

An infants' ward can not be effectively managed on the basis 
of a standardized routine whereby infant No. 18 is made to take 
at eight o'clock, according to some stereotyped technique, a bottle 
of the doctor's formula No. 5, by just any nurse on duty. To make 
a happy, plump baby out of a whining, skinny one it is necessary 
that little Mary Sweeney be under the care of one nurse. She will 
quickly learn that Mary is startled by sudden motions, likes to 
take her feeding slowly, yet has a habit of opening her mouth so 
widely that she swallows air with her milk, and likes better to sleep 
on her stomach than on her back. Mary, although weighing only 
eight pounds and still unable to focus her eyes, is an individual who 
likes and needs to be fondled a little and already has a personality 
with her own set of habits, some to be corrected, some to be in- 
dulged. 

Today every physician recognizes that his success is due less 
to the skillful use of drugs and formulae than to his ability to select 
and direct a good nurse. As Florence Nightingale said, the first 
objective in nursing is "to nurse the sick, not sickness." 

There is no better opportunity for the training of nurses than 
in the Infants' Hospital and there is little doubt but that the level 
of good nursing has been greatly elevated here, though it has been 
done under great handicaps. It is apparently not practical to 
have the routine daily care of infants wholly dependent on the . 
changing personnel of groups of student nurses whose duties are 
frequently shifted according to long-arranged schedules to wards, 
to food laboratory or to treatment room, and whose days are ir- 
regularly and frequently interrupted by classes. In the short peri- 
od allotted for this training, each nurse needs, certainly at first, 
nothing less than individual tutoring in her work. Although the 
number of nurses, graduate and student, working at the Infants' 
Hospital during each twenty-four hours, is fully half as great as 
the number of infants cared for, this does not in any way represent 
a fair idea of the distribution of work, and even on a basis of an 
eight-hour duty it is far from indicating that each six babies gets 
the individual attention of one nurse. The burden of routine as a 
whole falls on the supervisor and six graduate nurses — and on many 
occasions the burden is too great either for good nursing of babies 



or good teaching of nurses. This is a situation which must be 
considered so that on the one hand the teaching of nurses may not 
be hampered and on the other hand quiet, unhurried nursing with 
intelligent individualization may be provided for the sick infants 
entrusted to the Hospital's care. This need for the best care of 
sick infants could be met in part by increasing the number of 
nursery maid attendants, who, staying over long periods and 
trained in our wards, could on occasion assume a larger part of the 
work and enable the training of nurses to be unhandicapped by the 
routine care of patients and vice versa. 

This is not the place to indulge in a discussion of the many new 
policies which undoubtedly will need to be considered in the com- 
ing years — social, economic, sickness insurance, federal and state 
health activities, etcetera. All of these will require study in 
order that our leadership and service in the field of infant care may 
be continued. 

Appreciation is expressed to the Director of the Hospital for 
his understanding and helpfulness in making it possible to best 
meet the many problems which arise in ministering to sick babies. 
We are grateful to the Ladies' Aid Society and to the Board of 
Directors of the Hospital for their continued support, and acknowl- 
edgement is made to the members of the nursing and medical staff 
and the social-service worker, for their stimulating interest and 
co-operation in sharing the responsibilities of the medical care of 
patients, of research, and of teaching. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth D. Blackfan, M. D.

SMILES ARE EVEN BETTER THAN SCALES 




Little Wilfred N., four- 
teen months old, won 
his way into everyone's 
heart with his smile. He 
weighed only fourteen 
pounds on admission, 
whereas he should have 
weighed twenty-five 
pounds. Before he went 
home he was gaining 
rapidly, eating every- 
thing and able to stand 
by the aid of his crib- 
side. Smiles are even 
better signs of improve- 
ment than those shown 
by the scales.

HUNGER STRIKE" 



Even among babies we 
find rugged individual- 
ists who will not be 
' regimentated." When 
faced with a too-monot- 
onous existence, with anx- 
ious parents watching 
weight, spinach and vi- 
tamins, they begin a 
"hunger strike." This 
baby entered the hospi- 
tal, unhappy and in a 
dangerous state of mal- 
nutrition. He had re- 
fused to take any food 
voluntarily for weeks and 
could be fed only by the 
use of tricks, deceptions, 
and various other blan- 
dishments. These he 

learned to scorn and finally could be fed only by force. It took 
more . experience and more courage to follow out treatment 
for this little fellow than for most major operations. When left 
to himself with various foods and allowed to eat what he pleased 
and by his own technique, he ate with splendid concentration if 
with little skill and no attention to conventions. He is now plump, 
but what is more, he is happy. It is far more pleasant to pay a 
few extra laundry bills than to pay bills for tonics.

REPORT OF THE HOSPITAL DIRECTOR 

1934 

Looking at the year 1934 in retrospect, it is fair to say that the 
Infants' Hospital has had a busy time. Not only has it run to 
pretty near capacity at all times, but the type of case in Infants' 
Hospital is, as a rule, a sicker child than on the other wards and 
requires more individual attention. 

Our policy has been the strictest economy without impairing 
in any way the high standard of care that is desired. With this 
objective in view and carried out, thanks to the co-operation of the 
personnel and their untiring devotion to the patients, I am in- 
clined to think the strain on the personnel is too severe, and that 
we are sailing a little too close to the wind. 

A sick baby requires an infinite amount of sympathy and tact 
if the best results are to be obtained. Unlike a child or an adult, 
one cannot ask them how they feel, or where their aches are, and 
one cannot reason with them. 

Experience and intuition and constant observation are neces- 
sary. Sympathetic understanding in feeding is all important. 

By necessity student nurses come and go so that the responsi- 
bility rests on the permanent personnel of the institution. I am 
inclined to think that they are carrying more than their due share, 
and earnestly recommend that their staff be increased by one or 
two attendants. 

During the intense heat of the summer there was considerable 
complaint. The atmospheric conditions in the Upper Ward were 
pretty nearly unbearable on certain days. The sprinkling system 
on the roof was helpful and certainly has been a worthwhile invest- 
ment. There is nothing else that we can do to alleviate the suf- 
fering of the patients and of the nurses other than air condition- 
ing. General Electric Company very kindly made a survey of 
the situation, but their estimate was from $1 500.00 to $1800.00, 
which seemed in these times to be an unwarranted investment to 
make for remedying conditions which exist comparatively few days 
in the year. Eventually, when these systems have been given a 
longer trial, and are more perfected, they may be a solution to 
Hospital ventilation. 

The elevator, or dumb waiter, is very inadequate and unsatis- 
factory, particularly because much equipment (such as oxygen 
tanks, etc.,) now in frequent use, was not premeditated when 
this dumb waiter was installed. Sometime a real elevator should 
be installed. 

Although most infant cases are "followed up," after they pass 
their second birthday by The Children's Hospital, their complete 
records were not available to the Children's Hospital staff. Under 
a new arrangement, the Infants' records will now follow the child 
if it is cared for in the Children's Hospital. This will be mater- 
ially helpful to the doctors and beneficial to the child. The rec- 
ords are held in trust and remain the property of the Infants' 
Hospital. 

G. v. L. Meyer, 
Hospital Director.

REPORT OF THE NURSING SERVICE 

1934 

The daily average of student nurses on duty during the year at 
the Infants' Hospital was 22.186, daily average of illness .775, 
and leave of absence following illness .3. While twenty-three 
students are regularly assigned to this service, it is evident from 
our figures kept over a period of several years that we have to count 
on at least an average of one student daily being off because of 
illness. 

One school with whom we have an affiliation discontinued 
sending one student on August 1, but we were able to substitute 
a student for the remainder of the year. It has not been possible 
to replace this student permanently, and we are recommending 
that an attendant be employed. The great need at Infants' Hos- 
pital is to establish a stable personnel. Student nurses are assigned 
to the Infants' Hospital for one month and in a few instances, as 
with our own students, for two months. The entire time of a 
student nurse's affiliation in pediatrics may not be spent in the 
care of infants, so that a longer assignment is not possible at the 
Infants' Hospital. There are many duties on the wards which 
may be done equally well by attendants, and they help to stabi- 
lize the service over the first-of-the-month changes. 

There have been several desirable changes made at Infants' 
Hospital during the year. A definite effort has been made to pro- 
vide for teaching the convalescent babies from sixteen to twenty- 
four months to feed themselves. The point of view which has been 
fostered in the student nurses is that here is an individual baby 
with his individual problems. While the baby's diagnosis may be 
the same as a number of others on the ward, the attitude of mind 
which the student nurse must have is expressed by the questions: 
"What does this individual baby need?" and "What can I do to 
help this baby form right habits?" 

We have had very few changes in the graduate staff during the 
year. W 7 e believe that the nursing care of the babies at the In- 
fants' Hospital is of very high grade, and it is equally true that the 
student nurses are being well supervised and taught the funda- 
mental principles in the care of infants. 

There have been mechanical changes made which are proving 
very helpful. The Supervisor, Miss Jordan, in conference with 
the Maintenance Department, has worked out a system of night 
lights which is simple, economical, and gratifying in its results. 
It is never necessary now to put on the ceiling lights when caring 
for a baby at night. Another project has been to provide a method 
for keeping the food warm during an entire feeding period which 
lasts about two hours. The special containers are now being tried 

12 



out and when the plan is complete it will be possible to give every 
infant his food at the proper temperature. We have a lightweight 
truck which fits the dumb waiter and is in use every two hours 
day and night, transporting fluids and food from the food labora- 
tory and the upper ward, where formerly the student nurses have 
had to carry the food over the stairs. The installation of the two 
new pairs of Fairbanks scales has been a great help in weighing the 
babies. The weighing is more accurate than formerly and less 
time-consuming. 

Stella Goostray, 
Superintendent of Nurses. 



REPORT OF THE 
SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE 

In spite of the continued depression, conditions met in the homes 
appeared the same as usual. During the year one hundred and eight 
cases were opened, and seven hundred and ninety visits were made. 
The head worker was on sick leave for four and a half months 
during the summer. Her work was carried on by Miss June 
Sanford who gave three days a week to the department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alice Homans, 

Chairman.

LADIES' AID COMMITTEE 

ANNUAL REPORT 

The Ladies' Aid Committee of the Infants' Hospital has met regu- 
larly throughout the year, and the meetings have been very well at- 
tended. The increasing interest of our members is a great asset 
to our work. 

Through various activities, all of which were most successful, 
we have raised a good deal of money for the Hospital, which is 
very gratifying. One of these activities was another raffle of a 
dress, which always seems to be popular. 

We are able to give three beds to the Hospital this year, one 
more than usual, due to Miss Draper's benefit performances, given 
for seven charities, of which we were one. 

The Nurses' teas at Gardner House continue to be very suc- 
cessful, and very much enjoyed by the nurses. 

There have been very few resignations, and we have several 
new members. 

We hope that during the year of 1935, we shall be able to do a 
great deal for the Hospital, and help in every way we can. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Evelyn R. Hill, 

Secretary.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 
FOR THE YEAR 1935 



During 1935, the activities of the Infants' Hospital have been directed, 
as in previous years, toward carrying forward its three chief purposes,- — 
the treatment of sick children, teaching doctors and nurses, and research. 

The service to the community can be measured best by the number of 
families who look to the Infants' Hospital as a place where thev receive 
aid and comfort when their babies are sick. There were a total number of 
792 babies cared for during 1935, with an average length of stay of 
sixteen days. This response to the opportunities which are offered at our 
modernly equipped hospital acts as a continual spur to the doctors and 
nurses upon whom the responsibility of caring for these sick babies rests. 
It should be gratifying also to the Board of Directors and their friends 
who are making it possible to care for so large a number of these little 
patients to know that the facilities of the hospital are being used practically 
to their fullest extent. 

We have been impressed, in the past few years, by the change in regard 
to the age of patients who are applying for admission. The greatest need 
for hospitalization seems to occur in two extremes of age — the larger 
babies being between ten months and two years and the smaller babies 
from birth to two or three months. Diseases such as rickets, tuberculosis, 
malnutrition, and the highly fatal summer diarrhoeas, which heretofore 
made up a large number of cases midway between these two extremes are 
steadily diminishing. We are making a study of this tendency as changes 
in ages of patients and types of diseases necessitate alterations in the 
methods of treatment and nursing care and must be considered in planning 
for the future. This change in age groups has made possible a system of 
separating the small babies from the larger ones. Due to the initiation of 
Miss Jordan the older group are kept on one side of the ward and the 
"bassinette" babies on the other; an arrangement which greatly facilitates 
the proper maintenance of the different daily routine needed by different 
age groups. 

Today, on visiting the ward, one sees all together the larger babies 
sitting in their cribs before small bed trays, drinking from tiny cups and 
using tiny spoons to eat their food. Needless to say there are crumbs in 
their beds and bibs become very soiled and cups are frequently spilled, but 
nevertheless they are getting their first lessons in independence. This is 
quite a contrast to the times when they used to cry because they were 
hungry but had to wait until the nurse was ready before they were fed. 
Their sleep at night is undisturbed by the activities of the nurses feeding 
the small infants, now, in their own ward on the other side of the corridor. 

[4] 



On the new play porch on the upper ward which is being redecorated 
and made into a nursery, it will be possible to segregate the small group 
of older babies who require hospital care yet are well enough to be up and 
about and need to be trained to use chairs, sit around a common table, and 
feed and amuse themselves, activities which are necessary in beginning the 
training of social customs at an early age. We have tended too much in 
the past to neglect this aspect of infant care. 

We are indebted to the Ladies' Aid Society for providing such an attrac- 
tive hospital atmosphere for these infants. 

Indeed we are obliged to them for another feature which day and night 
fulfills a most useful function, — the mothers' rest room. This has been 
newly, attractively and comfortably done over. 

We must also express our pleasure and appreciation to this Society for 
the new touches of color in the Clarence John Blake Research Ward and 
in the premature nursery, and for the many things which they did to make 
this Christmas a happy and cheerful one. It should be added that although 
all these new alterations and improvements are actually enjoyed by the 
older babies, we feel sure that the atmosphere created has a salutary effect 
on the members of the medical and nursing staff as well. Such an atmos- 
phere without doubt is conducive to the better care of sick babies, par- 
ticularly when one realizes that with the best efforts there sometimes de- 
velops confusion and noise which it is impossible to eliminate. 

In this past year there was a fatality rate of 16.1 per cent. Of these 
deaths, 53.1 per cent occurred within forty-eight hours after admission. 
Many of these were not preventable, but it is hopeful in looking back to 
the diseases which were incurable, to find that many of them are curable 
at the present time. This situation has been brought about through re- 
search. Problems of research are continually being studied in this insti- 
tution, but likewise we are striving constantly to keep abreast of and to 
apply all new procedures which are the results of advances in treatment 
made not only here but in other places. 

Consider little Helen Higgins, — thirteen months old. She was brought 
to the Hospital one night unconscious and gasping for breath. An alert 
house officer recognized that she was in diabetic coma. Diabetes is a rare 
disease in babies and the diagnosis may be easily missed or delayed. With- 
out salt solution, sugar and insulin — the value of which have become 
known entirely as a result of years of research — she would have died. 
To-day although not cured, she is alive and with proper guidance and 
care is leading as happy a life as any little girl. Before each feeding a 
specimen must be secured and examined, so that the doctor can determine 
the amount of insulin to be ^iven. 

In the treatment of this baby, as in many other cases, the closest co- 
operation between the doctor and the nurses is needed. It is not an exag- 
geration to say that such team work has been developed here and to a 
high extent. 

Another responsibility which is shared by the doctors and nurses is the 
education of parents in the details of the care of infants at home, after 
discharge. For instance, the Cantanzon premature twins w T ere discharged 

m 



to the care of a very young and grateful mother. They were her first 
babies and she was timid about handling them. The nurses needed to 
teach every detail of their care, with the greatest patience, to the youn? 
wife and even to the father. He watched attentively as the manner of 
bathing and dressing them as well as of preparing their food was demon- 
strated. Finally somewhat embarrassed he said, "Perhaps Pll have to 
nurse them myself." 

It is of interest to note that among the forty-eight premature babies, 
while we can not quite equal the Dionne family, we had two sets of twins 
and one set of triplets. 

Then there is the necessity for coordination between the doctors and 
nurses and the social worker. Vincent Kelly, a beautiful one-month-old 
baby had vomited everything since birth. It was finally decided that he 
had not yet mastered the technic of eating. Mrs. Kelly arrived late on 
the day arranged for the nurses to show her the trick of feeding him. 
As she came in breathless and pale, she apologized and told the nurse that 
she had walked from Old Colony Boulevard in Dorchester to save carfare 
in order to buy medicine for her other child sick at home. The situation 
was straightened out by providing funds so that she could continue her 
visits to the Hospital without seriously fatiguing herself and neglecting 
her other youngster. 

A recently graduated doctor made the statement the other day that he 
enjoyed working at the Infants' Hospital because he was not hampered 
by routine. What he meant, for there is plenty of work to do and routine 
to follow, was that the attitude of the hospital workers is "What is there 
to do for this baby?" — not "What is the rule for treating this condition?" 
Ten babies on the same ward may have the same diagnosis yet the treat- 
ment and care which is best for one may not suffice for another. Sick 
babies like well babies are individuals. This is one of the primary prin- 
ciples which those who have the responsibility for the treatment and care 
of little children must recognize. As a helpful means of accomplishing 
this we have had for some time a ward attendant. We feel fortunate in 
having added another ward attendant to the personnel this year. These 
young girls have proved most efficient in developing the continuity of 
motherly care which individualization demands. One might ask what 
do they do? It is easier to tell what they do not do than to outline their 
daily duties. They never care for special precaution patients, infants in 
oxygen tents, routine house-keeping duties, or give treatments. They fill 
the gap particularly during "change days" and when there are "peak 
loads," without hampering the teaching of the nurses. 

Owing to the resignation of Miss Callahan who has served the Infants 
Hospital ably and faithfully for twenty years, an arrangement was made 
to secure a half-time secretary for the social worker, who at the same 
time would be able to assist in certain social activities. This plan is work- 
ing most satisfactorily. 

As regards teaching, very few changes have been introduced in the 
teaching of the third and fourth year medical students. It is of interest 
to record, in this connection, that the Infants' Hospital has played a large 

[61 



part in the education of doctors. Since 1923, over eighty physicians, 
who have received a part of their professional training here, have gradu- 
ated. Many of them are serving as generad physicians to infants and 
children, not only in the United States, but in Canada, and China, and 
England, and Japan, as well as in other foreign parts. Sixteen of these 
physicians have followed academic careers and are occupying key posi- 
tions in university medical schools. 

Appreciation is expressed to the Director of the Hospital for his un- 
derstanding and helpfulness in making it possible to best meet the many 
problems which arise in ministering to sick babies. We are grateful to 
the Ladies' Aid Society and to the Board of Directors of the Hospital for 
their continual support, and acknowledgment is made to the members 
of the nursing and medical staff and the social service worker, for their 
stimulating interest and cooperation in sharing the responsibilities of the 
medical care of patients, of research, and of teaching.

REPORT OF THE HOSPITAL DIRECTOR 

1935 

The justification for the continuance of the Infants' Hospital does not 
lie in the accomplishments of any one month or year, but in the gradual 
and consistent progress which is very evident in retrospect over a period 
of time. Hence it is gratifying to note that various cases admitted in 1935, 
many of which some years ago would have mystified the Staff, were 
subsequently discharged well or distinctly improved. 

It is questionable whether the average individual fully appreciates the 
difficulties encountered in an infants' hospital. One of these, and perhaps 
the most distressing, is the fact that parents are inclined to wait too long 
before they bring their ailing infants to the hospital, with the result that 
the original ailment may be seriously aggravated by complications which 
have arisen as a result of the first or second disturbance. This accounts 
for the very large number of desperately sick infants that arrive at the 
institution, and also for the high mortality which occurs within forty- 
eight hours of admission (53.1% of the total deaths) which might be 
substantially lower if parents sought advice before the infant was so 
critically ill. Too much emphasis cannot be made on the need of educa- 
tional propaganda, which may tend to induce parents to seek medical 
advice when nature gives its first warning. 

It is difficult indeed to adequately acknowledge the sympathetic care 
that is given by the entire staff to each and every patient. The low 
mortality, in spite of difficulties heretofore mentioned, is in itself more 
substantial proof than mere words of praise. 

The strain is very heavy on the individual members of the Staff,, for 
the patient is helpless, unable to express its feelings or its needs, and it 
is constant alertness and observation, plus knowledge mixed with intuition 
and understanding that nurses these pathetic creatures back to life, which 
more than often had been despaired of on admission. 

With a maximum capacity of thirty-five babies and ten prematures, it 
cannot aspire to attempt to cure the ills of more than some eight hundred 
cases a year. As the average stay is 15/17 days, the total number of 
Hospital Days is approximately 13,000. Each and every one of these 
days is of value to posterity. Gradually but surely, old problems are 
being overcome, new problems are being studied, records are accumulating 
which are of inestimable value in a subsequent diagnosis. 

The aim is to improve the quality of our service to each child, and the 
constant improvement not only in the curative aspects of disease, but 
likewise, in the preventative, and to disseminate the knowledge acquired 
for the benefit of infants of tomorrow.

REPORT OF NURSING SERVICE 
1935 



During the year 1935 the daily average of student nurses on duty was 
20.782; the daily average of illness and leave of absence following illness 
was .904 as against 1.075 for 1934. One attendant was added during; 
the year. 

When one figures the number of graduates, student nurses, and at- 
tendants assigned to the Infants' Hospital as against the number of patients 
a very satisfactory paper ratio results, but measuring nursing service in 
terms of ratio of nurses to patients does not give a valid figure. In order 
to have a better basis for judging the adequacy of nursing service by 
knowing the average provision for each patient, during 1935 the actual 
time each person spent on the wards was computed daily in the School of 
Nursing Office. We found for the year that the average provision per 
patient in each twenty-four hours was 5.6 hours. Some babies required 
fewer hours and others considerably more. The figure included the time 
of all student nurses and four of the seven graduates who give nursing 
care, including the work in the milk laboratory and in the treatment room. 
It did not include the time of the attendants. Of the four attendants 
employed in 1935, two are assigned to the general housekeeping on the 
wards, with the exception of the floors and windows which are done by 
the porters, the mending of linen, and whenever possible taking babies to 
X-ray. One works entirely in the food laboratory, and the fourth helps 
with the care of convalescent children. The Supervisor and two graduate 
head nurses are responsible for the supervision of patients, the clinical 
instruction of student nurses and part of the classroom instruction, as- 
sistance in the clinics for physicians, and assistance in the clinics and rounds 
for medical students. 

A casual observer at the Infants' Hospital might think that the daily 
round consisted of bathing babies, feeding babies, giving water between 
feedings, and changing diapers. It is true that the basic care of an infant 
takes several hours a day, but much of the work in the Infants' Hospital 
is not readily apparent. The demands on the nursing service through 
the development of new techniques and more knowledge about the treat- 
ment of the diseases of infancy constantly increase. The following 
figures will be enlightening. 

1934 1935 

Administration of intravenous glucose 553 671 

Hypodermoclyses 446 897 

Transfusions 233 317 

[ io] 



In order to give an administration of intravenous glucose from the 
time the nurse starts to scrub until the doctor finishes giving the glucose 
it takes the time of two nurses for twenty-four minutes. We have timed 
the procedures a sufficient number of times to get a valid average. The 
administration of the intravenous glucose is usually accompanied by a 
hypodermoclysis, and one nurse remains for fifteen minutes longer. For 
each administration of intravenous glucose accompanied by a hypodermo- 
clysis, therefore, the equivalent of the time of one nurse for an hour and 
three minutes is used. When a transfusion is given it takes the time of 
two nurses for twenty-seven minutes. None of these figures includes the 
times necessary for getting the baby from his bed, undressing him, re- 
turning him to his bed, and doing the necessary things for his physical 
comfort, nor do they include the time necessary for the sterilization and 
preparation of the equipment and solutions used. Each baby who goes to 
the X-ray must be accompanied either by an attendant or a nurse. The 
time consumed daily in travel between the Infants' Hospital and the 
X-ray room, time spent in having the X-ray taken and waiting frequently 
to have it developed to make sure a second one is not necessary because 
the baby moved, is apparent in a daily average, excluding Sundays, of 
3.14 X-rays. 

The other problem that has to be considered in estimating the nursing 
service necessary is that we do not have, except for the graduate staff and 
attendants, a group which reaches a level of maximum efficiency and 
remains there. Of necessity because they are student nurses, sixteen of 
the twenty-three students assigned to the Infants' Hospital change the 
first of every month and the others change on the twentieth of every 
other month. For this reason we appreciate very much the action of the 
Board in providing for another attendant in 1936 who will be a member 
of the stable staff.

Superintendent of Nurses.

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE COMMITTEE 



The worker in the Social Service Department has opened 122 cases 
needing intensive work and has made 1050 follow-up and instructive 
visits to homes. There have heen approximately 170 babies admitted to 
the hospital from Eastport, Maine, to Providence, R. I., Vermont and 
New Hampshire, which could not be visited. Where it was indicated, 
letters have been sent to the local Visiting Nurse Association, asking for 
visits of instruction and supervision, or for information about the homes 
which could aid the resident doctors to decide how soon a baby could 
safely return to its home. 

The Hospital has had two sets of twins which Social Service has en- 
joyed watching progress, but the worker has been most interested in the 
triplets which were brought to the premature room shortly after birth — 
on August 16th, a little girl and two little boys, weighing about three 
pounds and a half each. On January 7th, 1936, they weigh 9 and 9]A 
pounds and are behaving in a most exemplary manner. There were five 
children in the family when the triplets made their appearance without 
previous warning. Social Service was able to furnish layettes and blankets 
and baby scales. 

In August, after twenty years of service, Miss Annie Callahan gave up 
her work as secretary to the social worker. She had been a most faithful 
and efficient worker and Social Service was sorry to let her go. Her place 
was taken by Miss Caroline Saltonstall until the latter's marriage in 
December. Miss Saltonstall also assisted Dr. Clement Smith in his study 
of the cases of tuberculosis which have been admitted to Children's and 
Infants' Hospitals. 

There were eighteen babies in the Infants' Hospital with poliomyelitis, 
all of which have been taken under the supervision of the Infantile Clinic. 
These were visited by Social Service until they had reported to the clinic.

Alice Homans, 

Chairman.

LADIES' AID COMMITTEE 

ANNUAL REPORT 
The Ladies' Aid Committee has met regularly throughout the year, the 
meetings have been well attended, and a great deal of interest has been 
shown by all the members. 

We have two new sub-committees, an Entertainment and a Visiting 
Committee. The latter takes care of necessities, such as new decorations, 
new curtains, furniture, etc. 

There have been six Nurses' Teas this year, all of which have been as 
popular as ever. 

The money received through a Special Sale conducted by the members 
of the Ladies' Aid netted $2,333.83. 

Again, we were able to give three beds to the Hospital. 

We had two most interesting speakers at our meetings this fall. Dr. 
Richard M. Smith spoke to us on Nutrition at one meeting, telling us of 
the tremendous improvements that have been made during the past few 
years in the feeding of infants and children, resulting in the saving of 
many lives. We also had Mrs. Robert C. Terry come and speak to us 
on the Women's Crusade of the Community Federation of Boston, and 
of the interesting work that is being done in all the institutions. 

We are now joining the Children's Hospital in giving teas, at which 
visitors are shown through the Hospitals. Heretofore, we have benefited 
by these teas, but have not helped in the giving of them. 

There have been very few resignations, and we have several new 
members. 

We hope that during the year 1936, we shall be able to help the 
Hospital in every way possible. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Dorothea Chase, 

Secretary .

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 

FOR 1936 



In recording the activities of the Infants' Hospital for the year 1936, 
it would be of interest to outline in some detail the daily nursing routine. 
Since space does not permit this we will only mention again the valu- 
able and time consuming work which the nurses for the most part assume 
in educating parents in the methods of caring for convalescent infants 
and particularly premature babies and those with special handicaps. It 
seems as though everyone should know how to give a baby its bottle, 
but actually this is a feat of some nicety for many mothers. Awkward- 
ness and a lack of understanding of certain idiosyncrasies such as the 
inability of some infants to properly use their lips to produce suction, 
result in the admission of an appreciable number of such types of babies. 
The instruction of a single mother in the care of her premature infant 
may involve as many as ten visits of some duration, especially in such 
cases as that of a tiny infant) who at two months is just big enough and 
strong enough to learn to take its mother's breast. 

Very few alterations have been made in the teaching schedules and 
the work of the research laboratories is proceeding in an orderly manner. 

Aside from nursing care and education, one of the main responsibilities 
of the Medical Staff of the Infants' Hospital, is the working out of 
plans for the better treatment of patients and the continued endeavor to 
keep up to date in regard to new methods of treatment and new dis- 
coveries which are constantly being introduced. Here we have the oppor- 
tunity to evaluate the claims and to add to our forms of therapy, and 
drugs, those which prove of real worth. 

In this report we might call attention to some of the more important 
ones. Many years ago the wards were filled with patients with rickets 
and tuberculosis. The rapid advances in the prevention of these diseases 
has caused a tremendous lessening in the number of advanced deformities 
from rickets. Tuberculosis which was formerly a far more frequent 
condition in the Infants' Hospital still shows a small but diminishing 
figure. In the past year, 1936, six babies were admitted suffering from 
various forms of tuberculosis, while five years ago, in 1931, the figure 
was eighteen, — this decrease being due to more energetic public health 
measures throughout the community. We believe, however, that the 
cases we do see are just as fatal as they have been in the past, and we are 
therefore much interested in a new plan for the management of certain 
patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. This consists of bringing about 
a collapse of the lung by the injection of air — artificial pneumothorax. 

m 



It is surprising and not entirely understandable that a lessening of the 
number of patients with scurvy has not followed along the same lines. 
We have known since 1882 that if infants and other individuals are 
afforded fresh fruit juices, this dread disease will not occur. Yet in the 
past ten years we have seen in the Infants' Hospital and in the Out- 
Patient Department, 314 cases of scurvy. An ounce or two of orange 
juice or tomato juice given early in the diet of a young infant will prevent 
his developing this disease. That the more recent invention of the 
synthetized preparation of vitamin C (the vitamin in oranges and other 
citrous fruits) is of practical value, seems likely, for it is possible now to 
purchase a small tablet which quickly dissolves in milk and which will 
furnish as much vitamin C as two ounces of orange juice, — this at a 
cost slightly less than when it is obtained from the orange. This affords 
saving in the nurse's labor and provides a more dependable preparation. 

The most widely publicized new therapeutic remedy is prontosil. This 
chemical product is regarded as being a specific means of controlling: a 
very dangerous germ, the hemolytic streptococcus. Prontosil is neither a 
vaccine nor a serum, but is a chemical drug and was discovered and first 
used in Germany about three years ago. Experience with prontosil i 
limited to a few patients but we feel that some infants with severe 
hemolytic streptococcus infections have been benefited and possibly life 
has been saved in a few instances. However, definite conclusions as to 
its place in our armamentarium can not be drawn at the present time. 

Probably one of the most common diseases from which little children 
suffer, aside from diseases of the respiratory tract, is an infection of the 
genito-urinary tract known as pyelitis. Rapid advances in its treatment 
have been made by the use of mandelic acid, an acid-producing: salt. It 
renders the urine so acid that the. organisms are killed. The results 
obtained with this form of treatment are most gratifying and it seems as 
if it will prove to be simpler, more dependable and more efficacious than 
any other form of therapy we have used. 

A great step forward in the treatment of pneumonia was taken when 
we learned of the effects of an oxygen enriched atmosphere. The 
Infants' Hospital quickly began using this rather expensive procedure and 
gradually learned to make it less expensive so that now we can use it far 
more generously than most institutions. In proper cases our infant? 
obtain freely a treatment that in most hospitals and in private homes can 
be given only at a cost of twenty-five dollars a day. 

A newer method of treating a small group of very ill patients has 
been devised in which the inert gas helium is substituted for the inert 
nitrogen of the air. Because it is lighter and a "thinner" gas and car: 
slip through a small passage far more easily than nitrogen, this artificial 
atmosphere has proved of dramatic assistance in situations like severe 
croup where the throat is almost completely obstructed by swollen and 
inflamed tissues. We have been taking steps to use this new device, but 
so far are not prepared to do so, as the expense has been so great. Helium 
at present costs more than thirteen times as much as oxvgen and much 

[6] 



more is required. In the meantime we are experimenting with another 
method of accomplishing the same thing which may possibly be even 
better and cheaper. It will require the use of a heavy rigid chamber 
strong enough to withstand a partial vacuum. If this works out as we 
hope, we may find it of advantage to treat babies with certain types of 
pneumonia in an atmosphere as thin as that on the top of Mount Everest. 
It is hoped that research funds can be secured to defray the expense of 
investigation of this new therapeutic aid. 

It would be most desirable at this time to consider the cooling of the 
Infants' Hospital in summer. Although the fans which were installed 
last year were helpful, they only served to increase the movement of 
the air in the wards. Although urgent need is the replacement of the 
mechanism for maintaining a constant thermal condition in the room for 
premature infants. The present machine has been worn and torn by 
constant use day and night for years. 

A phase of medicine to which your attention was called two years ago 
is the question of medical and social economics. Just how the Social 
Security Act, Title V, will affect the Infants' Hospital is entirely un- 
known. Briefly, this act carries with it grants to states for maternal and 
child health services, services for crippled children and child welfare 
services. No definition of the term "cripple" has been made, so that 
we have no way of knowing how many patients will receive our aid, 
but certainly the number may be important. The exact arrangements 
vary from state to state, but the general principle is established that both 
hospital and doctor shall receive remuneration. 

At some time in the near future the Hospital should consider a policy 
which the Social Security Act raises, namely acceptance of these patients 
with provision for collection or distribution of medical fees to physicians 
for any patient in the Hospital. In addition it is clear that the admission 
of any considerable number of patients whose bills are guaranteed might 
lead to administrative problems. At present this question has not arisen 
in any important way but it is certain to become urgent as time goes on. 

An interesting line of thought is the plan for the graduate training of 
house officers. Twenty-five years ago the doctors who wished to practice 
among children spent one or two years training in the hospital. Now, 
with the new requirements for certification as a pediatrician, after 1938 
it will be necessary for the physician after graduation from the medical 
school to give four or five years if he desires to meet the qualifications 
laid down by the American Board of Pediatrics. This new plan, whether 
or not we are in accord with its stringent requirements, certainly will 
involve much thought in the organization of the training for interns. 

In analyzing the medical statistics for the past year one finds that the 
total number of patients cared for this year was not quite so high as in 
1935. This is due in part to the increase in the average number of days 
which the children stayed in the Hospital. Attention might be called to 
the fact that whereas fifty-five patients were transferred, nearly all of 
these children were transferred to the Surgical, Orthopedic Surgical, 
Neurological or other wards of the Children's Hospital. 

[7] 



The Mothers' Waiting Room has been most attractively refurnished 
this year and the little Nursery Play Room and Sun Room has served its 
purpose delightfully. 

Appreciation is expressed to the Director of the Hospital for his un- 
derstanding and helpfulness in making it possible to best meet the many 
problems which arise in ministering to sick babies. We are grateful to 
the Ladies' Aid Society and to the Board of Directors of the Hospital 
for their continued support and acknowledgment is made to the members 
of the nursing and medical staff and the social service worker, for their 
stimulating interest and cooperation in sharing the responsibilities of the 
medical care of patients, of research, and of teaching. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth D. Blackfan

REPORT OF NURSING SERVICE — 1936 



The daily averages for the groups on duty giving nursing service in the 
Infants' Hospital for the year 1936 were — 

Graduates 7.005 

Student nurses 22.32 

Attendants 4.101 

The daily averages for illness were as follows: graduates .018, student 
nurses .649, and attendants .055; and for leave of absence (following 
illness), graduates .014, student nurses .338, and attendants .086. The 
amount of illness among graduates and attendants is relatively insignifi- 
cant. We average a little under one student nurse off daily. One 
wonders if the hours of duty for student nurses, in addition to their 
classes, have any relation to the amount of illness. Student nurses are 
on duty 49 hours a week in the daytime and 56 hours at night, not 
including time for meals, and in addition must attend classes four to 
six hours a week and study. Actually, then, counting their classes but 
not study they are working longer hours than the paid personnel, yet 
they are supposed to be students. We should look forward to gradually 
reducing the hours of service for student nurses. In many hospitals hav- 
ing good schools of nursing the hours in force are 48 hours a week 
including classes. 

There have been two improvements which have reflected their influ- 
ence on the nursing service. First, the new cribs with the lower mat- 
tresses and the higher sides which do a good deal to lessen the anxiety 
as to the possibility of active children falling over the side of the bed. 
Second, the screening of two cubicles on each ward in which to isolate 
children with infectious enteric diseases and thus minimize the transfer 
of infection. 

The Division of Nursing of the American Hospital Association and 
the National League of Nursing Education have issued jointly during 
the year a manual on "Essentials of a Good Nursing Service" in which 
they give the necessary time for the bedside care of infants as a minimum 
of six hours in each twenty-four. This represents the time of general 
duty and student nurses. We would be inclined to increase this time in 
a research and teaching hospital. Using the daily average of patients 
for the year and the number of nurses on duty daily, we have an 
equivalent of 5.33 hours, which is increased .89 hours by attendant 
service. We cannot, however, transpose attendant hours equally into 
nursing hours as there are housekeeping duties done by them which on 
other wards are done by maid service. 

[io] 



During approximately the last quarter of the year two changes have 
been made which will increase somewhat the amount of nursing service. 
We have two graduate nurses on night duty at Infants' Hospital, and 
each one is entitled to one night off a week. Formerly on these two 
nights the day force relieved until twelve o'clock, leaving only one 
graduate on the service for the remainder of the night and on that 
night she worked twelve hours. We now have an arrangement between 
the Infants' and Children's Hospitals whereby one of the graduate nurses 
relieves at the Infants' Hospital on two nights during the week. This 
makes it possible to have two graduate nurses every night to cover the 
period from 7 P.M. to 7 A.M. Each graduate nurse has two hours off 
duty during the night. This plan adds to the day staff the equivalent 
of one day's service. We have also changed from the custom of having 
linen repairs made by one attendant to having them done in the general 
sewing room of The Children's Hospital. This releases the time of this 
attendant for such things as taking babies to the X-ray Department. We 
have, excluding Sundays, a daily average of three X-rays, and we have 
to count at least thirty-five minutes for a person to go to the X-ray 
Department and, back. 

When the Infants' Hospital has a heavy census it usually also means 
that it has a large number of very acutely ill babies. It is during these 
periods that we realize that we operate on a minimum staff rather than 
an optimum. At the times when the census does run low it is possible 
to give extra attention to very ill children. There is never any time when 
we do not have several very ill children whose recovery practically de- 
pends on skillfull nursing care. 

The School of Nursing is grateful to the Ladies' Aid Committee for 
their interest in the nursing staff as evidenced by the teas given by them 
and the Welfare Committee during the winter months. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stella Goostray, 

Superintendent of Nurses.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL SOCIAL SERVICE REPORT 



During the year of 1936, Social Service has made 11.16 visits. These 
included the visits of investigation to the homes while the babies are in 
the hospital, and the follow-up visits made after the babies have been 
discharged; as well as those made to those agencies which had sent babies 
to the hospital from homes already under their supervision. 

In addition to these, there were 102 cases which did not come under 
the group calling for routine visiting. The circumstances in the homes 
of these babies indicated that more help was needed than was associated 
with routine visiting, such as requesting relief agencies to supply extra 
milk or cod liver oil or oranges. In this group were two babies which 
were returned to the S.P.C.C. since they belonged primarily to that 
organization, and one was referred for investigation and supervision. 

Another instance was that of a father whose wife died at the baby's 
birth, and who was helped to find a foster home. Still another was that 
of a temporary placement while the mother was recovering from an 
operation. Three others went to Institutions for chronic diseases. 

Wellesley admitted 20 babies from Infants' Hospital for a period of 
further convalescence, a very wise and valuable step between hospital 
and home. 

During the first of the year, a number of visits of investigation were 
made to homes from which babies with the diagnosis of tuberculosis had 
come. Local Boards of Health were consulted about the "contacts" in 
the home.

Alice Homans, 

Chairman.

LADIES' AID COMMITTEE 

ANNUAL REPORT 
The Ladies' Aid Committee has met regularly throughout the year, the 
meetings have been well attended, and a great deal of interest has been 
shown by all the members. 

The Nurses' Teas at Gardner House continue to be successful and 
much enjoyed by the Nurses. Again we have given a tea together with 
the Childrens' Hospital and in connection with the Emergency Relief 
Fund. 

The Committee has had new coats of paint baked on to the babies 
cribs and has made the History Room attractive by complete redecoration. 

The money received through the sale of a dress from Madame et 
La Jeune Fille netted $962. 

The Infants' Hospital was one of eight charities to benefit by the 
showing of Colleen Moore's Doll House at Jordan Marsh Company. 
The members of the Committee sold 500 tickets for the showing and 
the Committee will receive $1,027.29. 

Again we were able to endow three beds in the Hospital. 

Some months ago we were fortunate in having Dr. William Ladd 
give us an interesting talk on the Surgical Service at the Hospital. 

There have been very few resignations, and we have several new 
members. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Dorothea Chase, 

Secretary . 
7 Hilliard Place, Cambridge

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 
For the Year 1937 



More than half a century ago, in 1881 to be exact, the Infants' Hospital 
came into being. In "poor" times and in "good" times it has never faltered 
in affording the best of medical and nursing care to little babies, in training 
doctors and nurses and in its search for new knowledge pertaining to the 
prevention and cure of those diseases to which infants are susceptible. Even 
though these be days of "recession" it must not falter now. 

In this report of 1937, a few pertinent facts relative to what is being 
accomplished may prove interesting to the friends of the hospital who un- 
doubtedly receive great satisfaction through the helping hand which they 
extend to suffering babies. It is the loyalty of its friends, in the coming 
years as in the past, to which the Infants' Hospital must look in order that 
it may continue to promote its threefold purpose, — care of the sick, train- 
ing of doctors and nurses, and research. 

Speaking broadly, the support rendered by the friends of the Infants' 
Hospital permits the offering of expert medical and nursing care to babies 
not only in this community but, through the teaching and training of doctors 
and nurses, to babies in all parts of the world. The same support makes it 
possible to continue the search for new knowledge, — newer ways and means 
to prevent and to cure disease. The same support serves as a "whip and 
spur" to the doctors and nurses upon whose shoulders the direct care of 
sick babies falls, — stimulating them to become conversant with and to 
apply the most modern techniques in diagnosis and to use the most recent 
forms of treatment. 

As to a few of the actual achievements, let us contrast two five year 
periods, the one from 1927 through 1932 — the other, from 1933 through 
1937. It will be recalled that beginning with 1933, because of the increas- 
ing cost of medical care and the decreasing income from investments and 
gifts of friends, we were faced with a deficit and the need for methods of 
economizing. Lessening the quality of medical and nursing care for the 
same daily quota of patients was not to be considered. It became advisable 
therefore to reduce the daily quota of patients in the hospital. No limitation 
was placed on the number of premature infants to be cared for in the ideal 
air-conditioned premature nursery. No babies requiring emergency treat- 
ment were turned away. Admission of some infants to other institutions, 
when necessary, was secured through the social service worker. 

[ 4 ] 



In the first period (1928-1932) the daily quota averaged about forty- 
six beds. In the second period (1933-1937) the daily quota was thirty beds, 
excluding those for premature infants. In the first five year period some- 
thing like 4309 infants had been admitted, but even with a reduction of 
nearly four per cent in the daily quota, 3815 infants were admitted from 
1933 to 1938. There were probably 494 patients or about 100 patients per 
year whom we were unable to admit without increasing overhead expenses 
or allowing the quality of the work to suffer. 

Before 1933, the daily stay in the hospital averaged approximately 
nineteen days. Since 1933 the daily stay in the hospital has been about 
sixteen days and in 1937, a low record of a daily average of fifteen days 
was reached. Likewise the admission of 799 babies sets a high record 
for this period — forty-five more patients than the average for the pre- 
ceding four years. This performance reflects credit to the medical and 
nursing personnel and demonstrates what can be done, without detriment 
to the patient, when the economic situation forces some curtailment of the 
hospital's activities. Lessening the average daily stay renders higher com- 
munity service to the greatest number, reduces the cost of medical care to 
parents, and, as will be mentioned later, obviates the chance of hospital 
infection. 

Using figures again, let us refer to the mortality statistics. In the first 
five year period the average number of deaths per year was slightly more 
than twenty per cent of the patients admitted. In the second five year period, 
the number of deaths averaged about sixteen per cent. But in this year of 
1937 the mortality rate has dropped to thirteen and a half per cent. This 
lowering of infant mortality is undoubtedly due in part to a better under- 
standing of the causes of many diseases and the application of new and 
specific forms of treatment, — both of which can be directly attributed to 
research carried on in the basic sciences and as well in the hospital labora- 
tories. 

As regards the air-conditioned premature nursery, as mentioned in last 
year's report the "home-made" machine had served its purpose well and 
successfully, but like other mechanical devices it had become worn from 
constant use and outlived its usefulness. Therefore a modern air condi- 
tioned system was installed during the summer. This gives promise of being 
equally effective, even though at first we had a considerable amount of 
difficulty in making it do what was expected. At the present time, the 
Infants' Hospital is adequately equipped to control the four general prin- 
ciples upon which the proper care of premature infants depends, — proper 
stabilization of body temeprature, proper nutriment, prevention of infection 
and proper nursing and medical care. Excluding deaths due to conditions 
incompatible with life, present on admission, we may point with pride to 
the fact that from June 1927 to January 1929, no premature infant died. 
This may be directly correlated with the continued employment of the 

[ 5 ] 



previously mentioned standards of technique and the cooperation of all those 
responsible for the care of premature infants. 

Now we might draw attention to a few of the other features which 
have so definitely played a part in modernizing the hospital care of infants. 
Many of these were mentioned briefly in last year's report but because of 
the improvement and enlargement of our equipment and because of their 
value they will bear repetition. First we might mention one of the impor- 
tant reasons which, although still under investigation, illustrates the value 
of bending every effort to lessen the average daily stay of patients. 

Much information has been obtained since the beginning of the present 
century in the control of cross infections in hospitals. In the Infants' 
Hospital each patient is in a cubicle six feet wide with partitions extending 
eight feet upward from the floor but not to the ceiling. Individual gown 
technique is practiced by all members of the medical and nursing staff; 
individual bath tubs, thermometers, and other articles are kept in each 
cubicle. 

Even under these circumstances, a number of patients each year develop 
febrile disturbances in the wards, which may be assumed to have been 
acquired in the hospital through transmission of bacteria by the hospital 
personnel, or by direct contact with another patient, or by air-borne infec- 
tion. It would seem that such hospital infections probably depend on 
mechanical inadequacies of the cubicle system or from omission of un- 
defined techniques on the part of the hospital personnel, doctors, nurses, 
students, attendants, and visiting mothers and fathers. 

For this reason, a survey of infections arising in the Infants' Hospital 
has been made in the last year in conjunction with the Harvard School of 
Public Health. From this survey and from a review of the literature, the 
conclusions have been reached that: infants should not be kept in hospitals 
longer than their condition demands; that premature, malnourished, eczema- 
tous, luetic or other infants not suffering from acute or chronic infections 
should be kept in wards separate from those housing patients with acute 
illnesses ; that each infant should be in a separate cubicle ; that open cubicles 
with walls not reaching to the ceiling are less satisfactory than cubicles with 
walls extending to the ceiling, these in turn being less effective than sepa- 
rate rooms with individual outside ventilation; that ultra-violet light has 
been effective in sterilizing the air of wards and should be subjected to 
more extensive trial, and that persons coming in contact with infants should 
wear gowns to protect the clothing and masks which are efficient in inter- 
rupting the dissemination of bacteria. 

In the summer of 1937 an air-cooling system was placed in each one of 
the four wards. This new equipment has already proven to be of much 
practical value. On hot, humid days sick infants admitted to the wards be- 
come quieter and less restless in its comfortable environment. Also, nurses 
and doctors who quite naturally reacted to the discomfort of the heat and 

[ 6 ] 






humidity under which they formerly had to work, now carry their burden 
of responsibility with greater ease in these air-cooled wards. 

Another mechanical device which has recently been installed is a room 
for the treatment by reduced air and oxygen pressures of diseases causing 
obstruction to the air passages, such as pneumonia, asthma, croup, foreign 
bodies in the bronchial tubes, etcetera. Before attempting to use it for treat- 
ment of such diseases in babies it is being put through a careful trial by 
experiments in order to determine its value and safety. It is entirely too 
early to tell whether this machine will supplant the more expensive oxygen 
and helium therapy for the same purposes. However, certain observations 
already obtained tend to show that new information concerning the physi- 
ology of respiration may be expected. 

Through the generosity of a friend of the Hospital, a fluoroscope has 
been installed and with this apparatus it is possible actually to visualize 
disease in the lung, the heart, the bones and other systems of the body. This 
has already proved its worth, being readily available and doing away with 
the necessity of carrying the babies a long distance to the central x-ray 
laboratory. The actual time consumed in an examination is ten minutes as 
compared to thirty or forty minutes for a trip to the X-ray Department. 
However, the point should be stressed that the information thus secured 
does not replace entirely that gained from the regulation x-ray machine. 

As to the actual therapeutic procedures to which attention was called 
last year, a considerable amount of progress has been made. For instance, 
the widely publicized therapeutic remedy, prontylin proved by trial in 
clinical application to be as important in the treatment of disease as was 
hoped. But in addition to being an effective agent against the streptococcus, 
we have learned that it also kills the colon bacillus, the gonococcus, and the 
meningococcus. This is truly remarkable, for whereas in the past a baby 
with a streptococcus meningitis was doomed to die, with this very wonder- 
ful chemical drug we are amazed to see how quickly not only meningitis but 
streptococcus septicemia is checked. This past year five patients with strepto- 
coccus meningitis receiving prontosil recovered. 

Its effectiveness against the meningococcus has definitely changed the 
entire procedure which we have used in the treatment of meningococcus 
meningitis. No more is it necessary to subject the babies to repeated and 
painful lumbar puncture and the injection of a foreign serum. Prontylin 
given by mouth when the disease is recognized early within two or three 
days, has reduced the mortality equally as effectively as has been the experi- 
ence with the former method of treatment. Thus far, of nineteen patients 
with meningococcus meningitis who received prontosil, eighteen recovered 
and one died. 

In this connection it is interesting to call attention to the possibility 
which now exists in the treatment of certain types of pneumonia. An anti- 
pneumococcus serum for several strains of the thirty-seven different types 

[ 7 ] 



of pneumococcus has been developed, and providing its use is begun early 
after the onset is often followed by reduction of temperature from 105° F. 
or more, to normal in twenty- four hours to thirty-six hours. It would be 
remiss, however, not to stress the fact that the new procedures now used in 
diagnosis and treatment require a more definite understanding as to the 
indications for their use and the reactions which may follow their use, than 
does the giving of a simple "cough remedy." 

A further refinement in technique has been instituted with regard to 
the Hinton test for congenital syphilis which is routinely performed on all 
babies admitted to the Hospital. In the past this has involved removal of 
a small amount of blood from a vein, often a difficult as well as slightly 
painful procedure in small infants. At present the same test is carried out 
on so small a sample of blood that the necessary amount is easily procured 
from a needle puncture of the finger or toe, entirely removing the features 
of pain and difficulty in technique. 

This report would be incomplete without a mention of the resignation 
of Miss Jordan, who for over five years has supervised so ably the nursing 
responsibilities of the Infants' Hospital. She now holds the position of 
Assistant Superintendent of Nurses of the Children's Hospital. 

This is a well-earned promotion. 

In the fall of 1937, Dr. James L. Wilson left Boston to accept an 
appointment as Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Wayne Medical School, 
Detroit, in association with the Children's Hospital of Michigan. His loss 
has been felt keenly by the members of the medical and nursing staffs, the 
students and innumerable infantile friends of the Infants' Hospital. 

The teaching of undergraduate and post-graduate students has con- 
tinued as in the past. As the actual necessity of post-graduate teaching has 
become more and more recognized in the training of experts in different 
fields of medicine, this is a problem which we must keep constantly before 
us, in order to maintain a high standard for the physicians who in large 
numbers constantly are seeking instruction here. 

Appreciation is expressed to the Director of the Hospital for his under- 
standing and helpfulness in making it possible to meet best the many prob- 
lems which arise in ministering to sick babies. We are grateful to the 
Ladies' Aid Society and to the Board of Directors of the Hospital for their 
continued support. Acknowledgment is made to the members of the nursing 
and medical staff and the social service worker, for their stimulating in- 
terest and cooperation in sharing the responsibilities of the medical care of 
patients, of research, and of teaching. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth D. Blackfan.

REPORT OF NURSING SERVICE— 1937 



The daily averages for the groups on duty giving nursing service in the 
Infants' Hospital for the year 1937 were — 

Graduates 7.226 

Student nurses 21.864 ' 

Attendants 3.834 

Although the average for graduate nurse service is higher than last year no 
additions have been made to the permanent staff. During this past year one 
of the night graduate nurses from the Children's Hospital has relieved on 
the night off of the Infants' graduates. This made it possible to have two 
graduate nurses on every night in the week rather than on two nights of 
the week having only one nurse from twelve o'clock on. The daily averages 
for illness were as follows: graduates .134, student nurses .592, and at- 
tendants .012; and for leave of absence (following illness), graduates .005, 
student nurses .269, and attendants .007. The amount of time lost by 
graduates and attendants due to illness continues to be relatively insig- 
nificant. We average .861 student nurses off daily. 

In order to try to prevent cross infection between patients and also with 
the personnel, all persons caring for or examining acutely ill children are 
wearing a new type of mask. 

While the average daily census for the year was 3 less than in 1936, the 
amount of nursing service required has increased. This is partially because 
measures which a few years ago we thought of as emergency measures are 
now general therapeutic measures. In order to have some specific com- 
parisons we compared the treatments given in the Infants' Hospital for 
December 1936 and 1937. They speak for themselves. 

December 1936 December 1937 

Transfusions 20 44 

Intravenous Injections 24 62

[ 10 ] 



Time studies made in the Infants' Hospital several years ago showed that 
to give an ordinary transfusion required the time of two nurses for approxi- 
mately 27 minutes. Every so often, however, the time for an individual 
transfusion is greatly increased owing to the difficulty of getting into the 
vein of a small baby and may amount to \j/ 2 hours, or even 2 hours, for 
each nurse. The usual clysis required the time of two nurses for 24 minutes 
each and one nurse 15 minutes more to assist with this treatment. We cite 
these instances not in criticism of the demands on the nursing service but 
to indicate the changing trend in treatment. Necessarily we cannot give the 
same amount of basic care to the infants, if we have to supply the extra 
service for these time-consuming treatments, with no additional personnel. 

Miss Jordan, who has been the Supervisor since February 1932, resigned 
in June to become the Assistant Superintendent of Nurses at the Children's 
Hospital. While she has not the daily supervision of the Infants' Hospital, 
she continues to have an interest in and general supervision of it through 
her work in the School Office. Miss Harriet Russell, graduate of Wheaton 
College and the Children's Hospital School of Nursing, who has been a 
head nurse on the unit has been made Supervisor. 

We are grateful for the friendly interest the Ladies' Aid Committee of 
the Infants' Hospital has shown by continued participation in the teas for 
the nursing staff. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stella Goostray, 
Superintendent of Nurses.

SOCIAL SERVICE REPORT 



During the year of 1937 the worker in this department made 1175 visits 
of routine follow-up, investigation, and consultation with other agencies. 
She also opened 84 cases which required more intensive assistance than 
given in the usual visit. 

Among these cases were babies which were sent to Wellesley for further 
convalescence, and to North Reading Sanitarium for treatment for active 
Tuberculosis — babies returned to the supervision of the S. P. C. C, the 
Catholic Charitable Bureau, Tewksbury State Hospital, the Child Welfare 
Department of Boston, The Childrens' Friend Society and the Marlboro 
Red Cross. 

Three babies were placed in foster homes by the Childrens' Aid Society 
while their mothers were recovering from illness. 

Where it was indicated that nursing help would be acceptable to mothers 
of babies living at too great a distance from Boston for the worker to visit, 
she has written to local nursing organizations asking for visits of instruction 
or supervision. 

Yours respectfully, 

Marion Story, 
Infants' Hospital Social Service Department.

LADIES' AID COMMITTEE 



ANNUAL REPORT 

The Ladies' Aid Committee has met regularly throughout the year. The 
meetings have been well attended, and a great deal of interest has been 
shown by all the members. 

The Nurses' Teas at Gardner House continue to be successful. Again 
we have given, with the Children's Hospital and in connection with the 
Emergency Relief Campaign, an Open House and Tea. 

May tenth was the Infants' Hospital benefit night at the Pop Concerts. 
Mrs. Dane and the whole Committee worked untiringly for the success of 
the concert. Symphony Hall was decorated and a yodler and a ski slide 
provided additional entertainment. The net profit from the evening was 
$1810.13. 

Again we were able to endow three beds in the Hospital. 

With the Board of Directors we are sharing the expense of having 
Miss O'Brien as publicity agent for the winter. 

There have been few resignations, and we have sixteen new members. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Dorothea Chase, 

Secretary. 



LADIES' AID VISITING COMMITTEE 



At last year's January meeting it was decided that each month two mem- 
bers would visit the hospital by appointment with the Superintendent, and 
receive from her any suggestions, and report at the following meeting. It 
was also hoped that this would lead to a better acquaintance between the 
Superintendent and the individual members of the Committee. This plan 
was carried out during the past year, and seems to have been of real service 
in bringing together the nurses and members of this Committee, and in 
stimulating mutual interest. 

Barbara Bremer.
